The Interprovincial Lottery Corporation (ILC) is an organization that operates lottery games in Canada. It is owned jointly by the five provincial lottery commissions. ILC's headquarters are located in Toronto, Ontario.
The ILC was established by the provincial lottery organizations in 1976 to operate joint lottery games across Canada. Today it oversees two regular games, Lotto 6/49 and Lotto Max, and Celebration (a special event lottery). In the recent past, the ILC oversaw Lotto Super 7 and Millionaire Life.
Each provincial organization is individually responsible for marketing the national games within its own jurisdiction, and revenues are returned to each province in proportion to generated sales.
