Quebec's Vaccine Lottery Has A Huge New Prize

After adding prizes such as a private jet flight and trips to the South, the provincial government is once again trying to encourage the population to get themselves vaccinated against COVID-19 with a new prize added to the approximately $2M in prizes for Quebec's vaccine lottery.

However, the winner will not receive the prize until 2022.

The Minister of Public Health and Social Services, Christian Dubé, announced on Wednesday, August 18 that a Sea-Doo TRIXX watercraft, courtesy of the Quebec company BRP, will be among the prizes to be drawn on September 3.

In a press release, Dubé mentioned that the watercraft in question is "light and compact" and "exceptionally fun to drive," adding that it is also "easy to tow and store since it takes up less space than a boat."

Although it is being drawn from among Quebecers who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the Ministry says the prize will be awarded to the winner next spring.

On July 30, the Quebec government announced the addition of some 20 prizes to the $1 million and 16 scholarships.
Among them are a seven-night all-inclusive vacation package for two people in Cancun, a travel voucher for two people for a round-trip business class flight to any destination served by Air Canada and ten travel vouchers for two people for a round-trip economy class flight to any destination in Canada.
