(FinanceYahoo) Canadians are invited to read the Developing a National Quantum Strategy paper and to join in these public consultations by completing our online consultation survey or sending comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to a Budget 2021 commitment of $360 million to launch a National Quantum Strategy, the Government of Canada will build on previous investments in the sector to advance the emerging field of quantum technologies. The strategy will support a vibrant Canadian quantum industry and help build the workforce needed to solidify Canada’s global leadership in this growing sector. Today, the Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry, announced the launch of public consultations on the National Quantum Strategy.
Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada is hosting a series of virtual roundtables this summer to gain vital insight from principal stakeholders in Canada’s quantum research and business communities. A National Quantum Strategy website has also been launched to facilitate public consultations with stakeholders that will further inform the strategy and to share updates on its development and rollout.
– The Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry: “Canadian companies need the support of their government as they jostle for a strong position at the forefront of quantum research, computing and software. Now is the time to strengthen and secure our position as a global leader in the quantum field. I look forward to working with the quantum community and encourage Canadians to participate in the conversation to help shape Canada’s quantum future and the life-changing benefits it will bring, from ultra-secure information sharing to more precise medical diagnostics to faster drug development.”
