The Collection

Collection Loto‑Québec

Collection Loto-Québec, one of the largest corporate collections in Québec, brings together almost 5,000 works of art created by more than 1,200 artists. This priceless collection of Québec cultural heritage has showcased the work of local artists since its creation in 1979. Discover the Collection over the years.

The Collection’s works are now more accessible than ever:

  • In the Corporation’s gaming establishments, where they are featured in cultural journeys
  • In major cultural legacy projects to communities
  • Thanks to long-term loans to health establishments


The works also brighten the environment for people working at Loto-Québec and its subsidiaries. Take a peek at Loto-Québec’s offices and the Collection’s works.

Loto-Québec also supports creativity through partnerships in innovative cultural projects.

Community legacy cultural projects

As part of the Collection’s 35th anniversary, a cultural legacy project was developed in collaboration with Université de Sherbrooke and regional contributors. The legacies, which combine art, the environment and the community, are located in Saint-Jérôme, Rouyn-Noranda, Jonquière (blog in French only) and Sherbrooke.
