Toronto Selected as Host City for Quantum Days 2025 

Toronto, ON - Quantum Days, Canada’s flagship quantum science and technology conference, has officially announced Toronto as the host city for its 2025 edition. Deep Tech Canada, the organization behind Quantum Days, has partnered with the University of Toronto’s (U of T) Centre for Quantum Information and Quantum Control (CQIQC) for the next conference, which will take place from February 19 to 21, 2025. This event brings together global leaders in quantum computing, quantum information, quantum communications, quantum materials and related fields for a series of insightful discussions, presentations, and networking opportunities. 

Quantum Days 2025 marks the fifth year of the annual conference and builds on the success of the 2024 edition which was held in Calgary, Alberta and welcomed over 400 attendees. 

The decision to bring the event to the U of T owes to the city's role as an important quantum cluster in Canada. Anchoring the Greater Toronto Area’s quantum cluster is the U of T, the CQIQC, and the Creative Destruction Lab at the Rotman School of Management. The city boasts a healthy and distinct research commercialization pipeline, a large tech and quantum-ready workforce, and the largest number of quantum companies in the country. Many notable quantum firms have emerged from U of T, including Zapata Computing, OTI Lumionics, Agnostiq, Quantum Bridge Technologies, and Xanadu – now a Canadian unicorn. 

Marie D'Iorio, President of Deep Tech Canada, expressed her enthusiasm for the upcoming event and reflected on the success of past conferences. "It has been incredibly rewarding to see the positive impact Quantum Days has had on the quantum community in Canada. This conference serves as a catalyst for groundbreaking research, fruitful partnerships with industry, and inspiring discussions. We are thrilled to announce Toronto as the host city for Quantum Days 2025, and we are excited to work with the U of T as we continue this tradition of excellence and innovation and solidify Canada’s position in the field." 

“We are delighted the City of Toronto has been chosen to host this distinguished conference. As the most significant quantum hub in Canada, the Greater Toronto Area is home to a thriving tech sector, skilled and diverse workforce, worldclass researchers and post-secondary institutions, and leading quantum firms. We look forward to welcoming delegates to our vibrant city next year,” said Councillor Shelley Carroll (Don Valley North), Mayor’s Economic Development and Culture Champion, City of Toronto.  

"As one of the world’s leading producers of quantum research, U of T is excited to partner with Deep Tech Canada to host Quantum Days 2025. This is a tremendous opportunity to welcome quantum experts, industry leaders, and policymakers from across the province and around the country to Toronto. It is by engaging in multi-disciplinary and multi-stakeholder events like this that Canada’s quantum hubs can unlock the full potential of this new frontier in discovery and economic opportunity, as well as compete in the global race for quantum science and technology," said Professor Leah E. Cowen, Vice-President, Research and Innovation, and Strategic Initiatives.  

Quantum Days 2025 is expected to attract hundreds of attendees from around the globe, including leading researchers, industry pioneers, policymakers, and students. The conference will feature keynote presentations, panel discussions, and technical sessions covering a wide range of topics in quantum science and technology.
