Sustainable development

  • conservation
  • economic performance.


Showcase initiative

Trees for Earth Day

Preserving the environment

On April 22, 2014, the Casino de Mont-Tremblant handed out red oak trees to its employees in celebration of Earth Day. This small gesture enabled the Casino to pursue its commitment to the environment, while raising employee awareness to ways we can improve air quality.

Economic efficiency

Social equity

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.

Volunteer Day Benefits the Maison Tournade Jeunesse in Mont-Tremblant


Casino de Mont-Tremblant employees took part in the Casinos du Québec Volunteer Day. The goal of the event was to renovate the Maison Tournade Jeunesse, an establishment that promotes community involvement and self-sufficiency among youth. Casino volunteers took part in renovations by painting and cleaning the kitchen and storage room, installing cupboards and storage.

We would like to extend sincere thanks to our partners in this project, specifically Construction Tremblant, Luma Électrique, Meubles Branchaud, Plomberie Roger Labonté, Rona Forget and weekly newspaper L’information du Nord Mont-Tremblant, who provided much needed services, materials and furniture.

Grand Défi Pierre Lavoie


The 6-employee Rouleurs des casinos cycling team biked over 1,000 km in 60 hours as part of the Grand défi Pierre Lavoie (GDPL) last June. The objective of this biking marathon is to promote healthy living to youth by emphasizing regular physical activity, healthy eating and staying in school. The money collected during this event was turned over to GDPL and to the Parc-de-la-Montagne primary school in Gatineau’s Hull sector.

Three cheers for the Rouleurs des Casinos!

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.

Sports for a good cause


Teams of Casino de Mont-Tremblant employees have participated in 24-hour ski and bicycle relay races for several years in the Mont-Tremblant region, raising funds for a variety of charities. In 2011, profits from the 24-hour ski event went to the Centre de cancérologie Charles-Bruneau Foundation, the Ottawa Senators Foundation, the Martin-Matte Foundation and the Tremblant Foundation. All of these bodies support research programs and treatment sick, injured and needy children.

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].
