On Jan. 13, Canadian Minister of Innovation, Science, and Industry François-Philippe Champagne announced the launch of Canada's National Quantum Strategy to enhance and expand the country's global quantum technology leadership.

With a commitment of C$360 million (about US$268 million), the strategy aims to make Canada an international leader in continued development, implementation, and use of quantum technologies; establish a national secure quantum communications network and post-quantum cryptography support; and support domestic developers and early adopters of new quantum sensing technologies.

In addition, the National Research Council of Canada will expand its Internet of Things: Quantum Sensors Challenge program and launch an Applied Quantum Computing Challenge program to turn quantum science and research into economically beneficial commercial innovations adopted by Canadian businesses.
