 2. The Montérégie region is 35 jobs richer thanks to the expansion of Symbiose Centre Contact Client in Longueuil, a call center specializing in customer service. A government loan of $800,000 has helped support the organization’s growth phase.

LAYOFFS

 1. GM Canada has announced plans to cut its Oshawa workforce by 1,000 people this year, because it has invested its efforts in the United States.

 2. Bombardier Aerospace has also cut mass employment. The company has laid off 1,000 people in Montreal and 750 others elsewhere due to slow demands.

 3. Rogers Media has laid off more than 100 people in the last month, most at its OMNI multicultural network, another sign that original news reports are disappearing.

 4. The ax has fallen on the Montreal School Board. Large budget compressions as part of the government’s austerity plans will mean that at least 175 positions will be cut.
