About the IIR

The IIR was created in 2010 by the Quebec City Conference (QCC), a not-for-profit corporation whose mission is to contribute to the identification and resolution of capital market inefficiencies that lead to underinvestment in activities or sectors that generate societal benefit. It was spun out of QCC to gain its own governance in 2011. More information on the QCC is available at: https://quebeccityconference.com/.
