The Western Canada Lottery Corporation (WCLC) is a Canadian non-profit organization founded in 1974 that operates lottery and gaming-related activities for its members, the governments of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Yukon, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut participate as associate members. WCLC works in conjunction with the following marketing organizations: Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission, Saskatchewan Lotteries, Manitoba Lotteries Corporation, Lotteries Yukon and Sport North Lottery Authority. In conjunction with the Interprovincial Lottery Corporation, WCLC offers Canada's highest payout lotteries, Lotto 6/49, Lotto Max (which replaced Lotto Super 7 in September 2009), and Daily Grand.[1][2]

In the late 1970s, WCLC produced a weekly televised drawing for the Western Express lottery. Hosted by sportscaster Don Wittman, Western Express alternated between showing the draws (several were held each week) and featuring interviews and regional profiles.
