The Casino in Montreal, Canada was created for the France pavilion of the 1967 World Exposition and it underwent renovations with the aid of local artisans and under the supervision of the Provencher Roy Architects practice in collaboration with Menkes Shooner Dagenais Le Tourneux.

The indoor spaces and circulation ways have been simplified to complete the renovation began in 1993, continued in 1994 and then in 1996 and the entire project was completed in only 10 months in the building that used to house the Quebec Pavilion.

The new renovation tries to fix the functional problems of the original project while also making the flow throughout more efficient with a circular hub spreading across four levels to bring the recreational areas together.

The gambling areas are placed around the vertical columns with aluminum slats and panoramic elevators. The fifth floor hosts the restaurant with two fast food counters, a buffet and an a la carte restaurant.
