Some big news from El Salvador!

August 14

CBN's state-of-the-art lottery system will provide crucial funding to municipal infrastructure, enhance public health, elevate education, and strengthen social services across El Salvador. Together, we're building a brighter future.

Ottawa, CANADA – Canadian Commercial Corporation | Corporation commerciale canadienne (CCC) welcomed the launch of El Salvador’s new national electronic lottery today, with a state-of-the-art system built and operated with Canadian Bank Note Company, Limited (CBN) technology. With the support of Canada’s Trade Commissioner Service, CCC secured a long-term government-to-government (G2G) contract with El Salvador’s Lotería Nacional de Beneficencia (LNB).

CBN will operate the lottery system on behalf of CCC for LNB, which in turn is mandated to allocate lottery proceeds to help fund the country’s municipal infrastructure, public health, education and social services, and to support LNB’s union members. The Legislative Assembly of El Salvador formally ratified CCC’s G2G contract on July 26th, 2022, ushering in expanded commercial and diplomatic relations with Canada.

”Our teams have done an outstanding job in 8 months establishing a modern new national electronic lottery for El Salvador providing both entertainment and social benefits. We look forward to building this new business over the coming years with our partners the Government of El Salvador, LNB and CCC” – Ravi Singh, Vice-President Canadian Bank Note Company, Ltd.

“CCC is proud to promote the growth of trade and investment relationship between Canada and El Salvador, while generating a range of social and economic benefits for the people of El Salvador.” – Antony Rizk, Director, Business Development, CCC.
