Governance

Governance

Loto-Québec subscribes to the principles of good governance. Our Board of Directors ensures that we are in compliance with the many laws applicable to us, including the Act respecting the governance of state-owned enterprises. Supported by the Governance and Ethics Committee's recommendations, our directors ensure that the Code of Ethics for Loto-Québec Employees and its Subsidiaries [in French only, PDF – 288 KB] respects the best practices.

The Board and its committees perform their roles within four broad decision-making axes: governance, finances, strategy and human resources management. Along with sound risk management and agreement between management and the Board of Directors, these pillars form the basis of the Corporation's smooth operation.
