Quebec's Photonics Cluster

Photonics is the science of light. The photonics sector brings together industries that develop, produce, or integrate light into their innovative products – regardless of their business activity.

With over 100 members, Optonique – Quebec’s Photonics Cluster is a non-profit organization (NPO) that works to promote Quebec photonics. Born of the ACCORD initiative and Quebec’s Ministry of Economy and Innovation (MEI), Optonique was born of the industry’s desire to come together to increase its capacity for innovation. Since 2017, it has been mobilizing the photonics sector, i.e. companies, research centres and educational institutions, to contribute to the dissemination and reach of their expertise.
