About the INQ

The Institut nordique du Québec (INQ) aims to foster the sustainable development of the North by bringing together Quebec’s expertise in the broad fields of northern and Arctic research. The cornerstone of this initiative is a far-reaching alliance between Université Laval, McGill University, Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS), and numerous public, private, and academic partners, as well as the aboriginal communities of northern Quebec. The INQ takes an inclusive, collaborative, and multi-disciplinary approach to addressing the complex challenges of northern development. This unique intersectoral and interinstitutional institute brings together the top expertise in the natural, health, social and human sciences as well as engineering and the arts. This expertise is supported by large-scale northern research infrastructures and a scientific program that includes 6 research themes and 15 innovation platforms.
