QI is first and foremost a place for the integration and interconnection of the four segments that are essential to a creative society; together they create a world-class innovation ecosystem in Montreal:

Urban segment

With its sustainable development, services for municipalities and citizens, green spaces, respect for history and heritage, public transportation and shared management of infrastructure, the QI is a genuine “living laboratory”, where science and technology are visible and accessible to the public.
 QI Montreal: an ecosystem that is a great place to live.

Education and Research segment

Training the next generation of highly qualified personnel requires the continual updating of programs, aligning courses with the needs of the community, and maintaining excellence in research. Multidisciplinarity, internships in the QI, and the creation of networks and centres of excellence are supported and encouraged.  QI Montreal: a knowledge-based ecosystem.

Industrial segment

The QI has the highest concentration of IT workers in Canada. Its role is to showcase not only these companies but also those in other sectors, to improve collaboration among these companies and the various players, and to foster the emergence of new ideas while accelerating the innovation process. QI Montreal: a virtual and physical business ecosystem, marked by an entrepreneurial spirit.

Social and Cultural segment

The strong presence of creators and idea generators within the QI allows us to mix the social and the functional, fostering meeting points for arts, culture, technology and innovation. We must capitalize on this diversity and make the various platforms and expertise of our university institutions available to the district’s many organizations. QI Montreal: an ecosystem serving an innovative community.
