Quebec Cluster in Optics-Photonics



Since Quebec is trying to solidify its leadership in optics-photonics, a new excellence cluster with headquarters in Quebec City has been created to support the quebec industries in their international growth.

This cluster is a merge of the Quebec Photonics Network (QPN) and the Cercle de l'industrie optique-photonique (CIOP). The Quebec Province is investing $190k per year in this new venture.

Within the Province, the optics-photonics industry produces almost $800 million with 7500 employees.
