Discover the Quartier de l'Innovation


The Quartier de l'innovation (QI) is a 3,5 km²  world-class experimental area in the heart of Montreal.

Its mission is to foster a one-of-a-kind innovation ecosystem where experimentation and collaboration between academics, entrepreneurs and residents generate benefits for society. Its territory stretches from René Lévesque Boulevard to the Lachine Canal from north to south, and from McGill Street to Atwater Avenue from east to west. QI is supported by the Government of Canada, the Government of Quebec, the City of Montreal, four universities (École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS)McGill University, Concordia University and Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM)), and close to thirty private partners.
