400 Jobs To Be Eliminated At Canada’s Largest Newspaper Publisher

Sad news from our neighbors to the north: Quebecor Inc. is eliminating 400 jobs from its Sun Media division, which publishes newspapers across the country, CTV reports.

Half those jobs will be eliminated through buyouts, while one hundred open positions will remain unfilled and a further hundred people will be laid off, Southern Ontario Newsmedia Guild president Paul Morse told CTV.

No word on what department(s) will be hit by the cuts, and Quebecor execs haven’t confirmed anything, but we’ll be watching.

Sun Media’s last round of major layoffs came three years ago when 600 jobs were cut.
