Loto-Québec’s employee volunteerism activities are grouped under the Tous gagnants program. In 2019-2020, our employees heeded the call to pay it forward. For example:

  • $350,000 raised during the Tous gagnants generosity campaign

More than 49,855 bar and brasserie owners and employees gain awareness to problem gambling

The Taking Risks Is No Game training course is mandatory for all video lottery retailers and employees assigned to VLTs. The course raises awareness and provides trainees with the tools they need to encourage responsible gambling. More than 49,855 bar and brasserie retailers and employees have taken the training since the program was first launched in March 2002.

An accessible art collection

The Collection Loto-Québec is the biggest corporate art collection in Canada. Over the past few years, it has launched cultural heritage projects in several Québec regions, as well as cultural journeys at our four casinos.
