Several dozen employees from Shaw Communications’ Kelowna operation got their walking papers this week.
Peter Bissonnette, the president of the cable giant, announced the company delivered 500 job cuts across Canada as part of a company reorganization.
Part and parcel with the cuts is that the company’s operations will be whittled down from 18 regions into seven larger regions which Bissonnette has said will reduce the cost of business.
Further lay-offs have reportedly occurred in Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Langley, Vancouver Island, Edmonton, Kamloops, Sault Ste. Marie, Thunder Bay, Red Deer and Lethbridge.
