Building the Canadian Advantage in Cutting-edge Innovation

Artificial intelligence, quantum computing, and photonics are leading to some of the greatest technological transformations of our age. Canada is home to leading researchers and institutions in these fields, a network of cutting-edge talent, and a diverse ecosystem of start-ups and scale-ups.

A re-elected Liberal government will:

  • Move forward with our plan to invest in the Pan-Canadian Artificial Intelligence Strategy, supporting artificial intelligence innovations and research in Canada; investing in the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research to attract and retain top academic talent; providing dedicated computing capacity for researchers at the national artificial intelligence institutes; and advancing the development and adoption of AI standards.
  • Move forward with a National Quantum Strategy that will amplify Canada’s significant strength in quantum research, and grow our quantum-ready technologies, companies, and talent.
  • Move forward with our plan to invest in the National Research Council’s Canadian Photonics Fabrication Centre and reinforce Canada’s leadership in photonics research, testing, and prototyping done by academics and other innovative businesses.
