About the QCC

Founded in 2003, QCC is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to support private investment activities producing societal benefit by identifying and addressing structural inefficiencies in the market place. QCC delivers this mission by creating and supporting action-oriented communities of aligned stakeholders (‘QCC forums’), each of which is designed to solve industry gaps.

We currently support three QCC Forums:

  1. The Institutional Investors Roundtable (IIR)
  2. The Fiduciary Investors Roundtable for Collaboration and Partnerships (FIRCAP)
  3. The Tech Innovation Platform (TIP)

In addition to these forums, QCC also hosts the annual QCC Conference, a private, not-for-profit event alternating between Quebec City and Toronto, aiming to strengthen the Canadian and international private market investment ecosystem by helping leading asset managers to foster relationships of trust with international asset owners through pre-meeting interviews and communications.

QCC is supported by the Governments of Canada, Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia, by Quebec City, and by private sponsors, including Business Development Bank of Canada, Investissement Québec, Deloitte and National Bank of Canada.
