Sustainable development


In this section, you will learn about the many efforts the Casino de Mont-Tremblant has made to maximize its contribution to the community. The Casino’s various initiatives relate to the three dimensions of sustainable development:

  • social fairness
  • conservation
  • economic performance.


Showcase initiative

4 casinos, 4 Moisson : Par pur plaisir… de donner!

Social equity

On September 23, 2015, two teams of 13 employees got together for Par Pur Plaisir… de donner volunteerism day dedicated to a common cause: food insecurity. The activity benefiting Moisson Laurentides took place in two grocery stores in the Laurentides region to help stock area food banks and feed people in need. The 4 Casinos, 4 Moisson Organizations partnership focuses the SCQ’s social engagement efforts on a cause that reaches significant numbers of people.

The activity is deployed as part of Loto-Québec’s corporate volunteerism program to provide employees with opportunities to contribute in a positive way by taking part in volunteer activities or becoming involved in the community.

Many corporate initiatives will be undertaken internally to support Moisson organizations, including organizing recurrent volunteer activities, fundraising events and foodstuff collection drives.

Economic efficiency

Social equity

Employees Provide Schoolbags for Local Families


For the fourth consecutive year, the Casino de Mont-Tremblant got involved in the community by preparing backpacks filled with school supplies, which were distributed to families in the Laurentians. In cooperation with Centraide Gatineau-Labelle-Hautes-Laurentides, two local organizations in the region – the Comptoir alimentaire de Val-David and Défilons ensemble, in Saint-Donat – were selected to distribute the bags to the families in need.

This activity was organized as part of Loto-Québec's Le collectif Tous gagnants volunteer program. The program provides employees with opportunities to take part in volunteer activities to get involved in the community.

Bowling Tournament Raises Funds for La Maison de la Famille du Nord


A bowling tournament held on March 27 raised $15,000 in support of Maison de la Famille du Nord des Laurentides. This sum will be used to organize activities for families with children aged 0-5 years. The fundraiser was made possible thanks to employees at Casino de Mont-Tremblant, who organized spaghetti dinners to cover registration fees. Yet another generous gesture by our employees who are committed to their community.

Gens de cœur


For the 4th consecutive year, 2 Casino de Mont-Tremblant employees received a cheque in the amount of $150 to be remitted to their favourite charitable organization in the Gens de coeur (people with heart) segment of Loto-Québec’s Community Involvement program. The initiative provides financial support to non-profit organizations in which our employees are regularly involved.

The Casino de Mont-Tremblant is proud to recognize the efforts of employees who get involved in their community’s non-profit organizations.

Volunteering at sports events


Mont-Tremblant is an acknowledged host of all kinds of sports events, such as the August, Mont-Tremblant Half-Marathon and Ironman games. Groups of Casino de Mont-Tremblant volunteers help out at the major events either individually or as families by providing refreshments and information to participants, etc.

These kinds of activities make a contribution to the region’s vitality by enabling links to grow within the community and by providing support for energizing events.

Preserving the environment

An efficient composting program


The Casino de Mont-Tremblant has put in place a composting program to divert some two metric tons of organic matter from landfill sites.

Composted matter, essentially from the Altitude Restaurant, employee cafeteria and banquet hall kitchens, is transformed into humus, which is a natural support medium for plant growth that is made of earth enriched by decomposed matter.

Elimination of bottled water


The Casino de Mont-Tremblant replaced individual water bottles by reusable glasses in its gaming areas, an initiative that drew active participation from both employees and customers.

The project, which was rolled out in all Québec casinos, will eliminate nearly 1.2 million plastic bottles annually.



Actions integrated in an overall approach to sustainable development



Throughout Loto-Québec and its subsidiaries, sustainable development is supported by the responsible management of games of chance, taking into account economic, social and environmental aspects in order to maximize our contribution to the community.

Our commitment leads us to analyze the consequences of our activities in order to, in as much as possible, amplify their positive effects and mitigate negative consequences. This focus is given concrete expression in our sustainable development policy (in French only) [PDF, 288 KB, updated on June 12, 2007], adopted in 2006, and in our 2013-2015 sustainable development action plan (in French only) [PDF, 1,3 MB, online as of April 4, 2013].

Sustainable development is one of the six strategic orientations included in our 2010-2013 Strategic Plan [PDF, 1.8 MB, updated on October 19, 2010].
