The Quebec Centre for Biodiversity Science results from a partnership initiated by ten Quebec academic institutions, in collaboration with one public organization and one governmental organization. This initiative was made possible in 2009 through a FRQNT grant for the creation of a strategic cluster. Since its creation in 2009, the QCBS is directed by Andrew Gonzalez of McGill University.
