CCC, CBN launch new El Salvador national lottery system
OTTAWA, Aug. 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CCC is pleased to welcome the launch of El Salvador’s new national electronic lottery, 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.

Through CCC’s G2G contracts, the Government of Canada brings qualified Canadian companies like CBN to meet the needs of government buyers around the world. Every G2G contract has the legal effect of being signed in the name of the Government of Canada and comes with an assurance of contract performance.
