These funds will be used to support the completion of five projects, whose costs total more than $166.1 million, in the DistriQ quantum innovation zone, specifies the Prime Minister's Office in a press release.

In particular, the government will pay more than $28 million to a collaborative quantum space, which will eventually be able to accommodate up to around thirty companies. This is the first showcase of its kind in North America in the field of quantum, underlined the Minister of Economy, Innovation and Energy Pierre Fitzgibbon, who participated in the announcement.
