Mission and governance
QIX's mission is to establish and operate an Internet Exchange infrastructure that meets the needs of local, national and foreign network, content and Internet Service providers. The objective is to elevate the status of Montreal to that of one of the preeminent peering locations in the Canadian and North American market.
QIX was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization (NFPO) under the name of the Internet Exchange of Montreal (EIM) Inc. which will allow each member connected to enjoy the benefits and advantages of the exchange. A private operator will ensure the management of the entire operation of the exchange, including membership and connection members, supervision and technical monitoring, management of the members' portal and billing.
