Harnessing quantum mechanics will lead to transformational technologies that will benefit society and become a new engine of economic development in the 21st century. 


Our mission is to develop and advance quantum information science and technology at the highest international level through the collaboration of computer scientists, engineers, mathematicians and physical scientists.

Strategic objectives

  1. To establish Waterloo as a world-class centre for research in quantum technologies and their applications.
  2. To become a magnet for highly qualified personnel in the field of quantum information.
  3. To be a prime source of insight, analysis and commentary on quantum information.
