I am pleased to announce that over 800 SMEs in Quebec and Ontario have now joined the ENCQOR 5G program. This is a remarkable achievement, unique in Canada, which illustrates the great capacity of the ENCQOR 5G program to mobilize SMEs from a wide variety of sectors.

In December 2021, ENCQOR passed the 800 SME mark. These companies work in fields such as transportation, autonomous vehicles, mining, manufacturing, agriculture, smart cities, telecommunications and augmented reality. All these sectors demonstrate the wide range of possible applications for 5G and the impact this technology will have on businesses and the economy.

Contributing to the digital transformation of the Canadian economy

The ENCQOR 5G ecosystem, which stands out in Canada’s 5G space by bringing together players from large companies, SMEs and academia, is playing a key role in the digital transformation of the Canadian economy – an essential condition for our future competitiveness on the international scene.  

In this regard, I invite you to read a report recently published by ENCQOR 5G, which presents the testimonials and vision of several participants in the program. In this report, you will learn about the tangible and transformative benefits of the ENCQOR program for the development of businesses and the economy, as well as for the advancement of applied research in 5G.

Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your loved ones a very happy new year!
