Pole of excellence
in optics-photonics

Optonique is a non‑profit organization established jointly by Quebec’s optics‑photonics network (RPQ) and optics‑photonics industry circle (CIOP) to form an industry hub. It was created in response to a call by Quebec’s optics‑photonics entrepreneurs and researchers for a province‑wide forum that would act as a source of synergy for promoting Quebec optics‑photonics technologies and expertise at the local, national, and international level. Optonique’s main role is to unite the businesses, research centers, and academic institutions operating in Quebec’s optonics‑photonics sector. As the province’s official hub for excellence in optics‑photonics, Optonique is recognized by Quebec’s ministry of economy and innovation (Ministère de l’Économie et de l’Innovation) and receives support through the ACCORD initiative for the development of Quebec’s strategic sectors and areas of excellence.
