About Us

Quantum City is building an ecosystem for quantum science and technology in Alberta bringing together researchers, developers and adopters of quantum technology and services. 

Quantum City’s mandate is to capture the benefit of quantum technology by creating adoption pathways. Quantum City is establishing quantum technology enabling infrastructure, creating a pipeline for talent and experts and narrowing the gap between quantum technology and solutions to support the development of a vibrant economic and scientific hub based in Calgary. 

These combined assets will create a unique, and once-in-a-generation opportunity to position Alberta as a national and international jurisdiction in the new quantum economy.
