Canada is among the leading nations globally in quantum research. By 2030, economists project that our quantum technology industry will be valued at $8.2 billion, employ 16,000 people and generate $3.5 billion in taxable returns for the government. The Federal Government has recognized this strength by announcing $254 M over five years to launch a National Quantum Strategy that will grow and develop homegrown quantum-ready technologies and companies.
With major hubs in Sherbrooke, QC, and Waterloo, ON, Canada’s industry-orientated quantum capabilities exhibit wider expertise in quantum computing, sensing and quantum cryptography. Nearly 50 quantum technology companies are based in Canada and are poised to make impacts in the areas of defence and security, IT, health and sensing, metrology, finance and more.
Global Advantage Consulting Group has conducted extensive research to produce reports and databases that reveal the state of Canada’s quantum research ecosystem and identify major stakeholders, gaps and opportunities.
Past quantum-related projects include:
- A report on Canadian, German and the United Kingdom quantum technology ecosystems and partnering opportunities to assist Canadian researchers and the broader Canadian quantum technologies community seek out, explore and build partnerships in Germany and the UK
- A Briefing Deck on the Canadian quantum sensing technology landscape and comparison with near-peer nations on commercialization quantum research, collaboration models and best practices to advance commercialization and collaboration. The main argument concluded that absent a national quantum technology strategy and the development and commercialization of QT, Canada risks losing ground to near-peer nations
