The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, often known by its French acronym LHJMQ, received $12 million from the Quebec government to help it absorb the consequences of COVID-19 restrictions.

The Quebec government recently announced it will inject $70 million into sports associations, federations and leagues after public health authorities paused most sports activities to slow the spread of COVID-19.
