Revenues generated by Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries are returned to the Province to support priority programming in health care, education, social and community services, economic development and public safety initiatives.
Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries is one of the province’s largest employers with approximately 3000 full-time, part-time and casual employees, most of whom work at various Winnipeg locations, including about 600 staff members at each casino, but also in Morris, Brandon and at dozens of Liquor Marts throughout the province.
Each year, the corporation sponsors numerous worthwhile charitable and community events such as the Habitat for Humanity Legacy Build, the Manitoba Marathon and CNIB’s Eye on The Arts. These are just a few of the annual events where Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries employees volunteer in great numbers and in doing so benefit each organization while raising funds for the employees’ Charity of Choice program.
