1 INSTITUTE FOR QUANTUM COMPUTING CORPORATE PLAN To be submitted to the Ministry of Innovation, Science and Economic Development January 2016 Draft for Board of Governors approval

2 FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Building Canada s Quantum Economy Over the last thirteen years, I have participated in an experiment an experiment to create the next new industry for Canada. When we started out with two faculty members in a remote corner of the University of Waterloo I only imagined a dynamic community of researchers working in a world-class ecosystem. I no longer have to imagine this. Our bold vision is now a reality. IQC is a world leader in quantum information research. Our faculty and students are producing mind-boggling results in an accelerated fashion. And to my own surprise, IQC has spurred six startup companies in these short thirteen years. If you had asked me in 2002 whether we would have startup companies today, I might have chuckled with nervous laughter. I would have never guessed the technologies would emerge this quickly. Yet, I am immensely proud that they have. It means our researchers are making incredible progress. Going forward, IQC must continue to push the boundaries of our knowledge in quantum information. We have learned much, but there is much more to explore. We now understand the quantum world and how to harness the power of its behaviours. The next great challenge will be to translate that knowledge into more relevant and diverse technologies. Our growing industry partnerships will be key in our success in this area. These partners will bring us questions and our job will be to use quantum technologies to solve these problems and turn those technologies into commercial opportunities. Thank you in large part to the Government of Canada, I have no doubt that we will continue to succeed in this bold experiment. Through continued investments and confidence in our research, IQC will be an engine for Canada s future economy. We will grow the Quantum Valley with more companies, more technologies and more investments. In a challenging economic environment, I am humbled and proud immensely proud that our work is a shining beacon of future prosperity. I look forward to the next year ahead and seeing how our continued experiment shapes the future for Canada. Sincerely, Raymond Laflamme Executive Director Institute for Quantum Computing University of Waterloo 2
