Smart Canadian talent to pay crucial role in quantum computer revolution
There is abundant evidence that we are developing some of the best quantum talent in the world. Will we end up with a Canadian quantum computing industry? That’s our potential. But our early-stage companies have far to go to become profitable, Canadian-controlled companies with the scale and scope to prosper in the global marketplace.

According to the New Scientist, quantum computers 'are machines that use the properties of quantum physics to store data and perform computations,' which 'can be extremely advantageous for certain tasks where they could vastly outperform even our best supercomputers.'
