The world economy is being driven by emergent global trends in communication, security, sensing, and computing. As performance limits are reached in existing technologies, quantum enhanced technologies will increasingly disrupt and replace current approaches.

Together with its partners from academia and industry, the Government of Canada is facilitating the Quantum Canada initiative. The first step is a consultative survey to identify the gaps, opportunities, and challenges for quantum R&D and the commercialization of quantum technologies in Canada.
