"Quantum Canada is a national initiative to grow coherence in Canada's vibrant quantum ecosystem. Quantum Canada is supported by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), lead investor of the academic community and a major investor in academic-industry research partnerships; the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR), which supports global networks of leading researchers doing fundamental research across a broad spectrum of disciplines, with two long-standing programs in quantum science; and the National Research Council of Canada (NRC), the federal government's premier research organization. The Quantum Canada survey was launched in September 2016 with the following objectives: identify existing Canadian quantum R&D activities, defence activities, and commercialization efforts; and, determine strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of Canada's quantum ecosystem, including infrastructure, human resources, standards initiatives, defence activities, partnerships, clusters, commercialization, and funding mechanisms. The following survey overview includes data from over 350 respondents. Respondents were primarily affiliated with universities, followed by government departments, and industry, likely reflecting the current distribution of the quantum ecosystem.
