June 16th, 2017
At the beginning of June, Canada’s oldest retail company announced that it would be cutting 2000 jobs across North America.
Canadian employees of Hudson’s Bay will be affected by this movement, which will be fully implemented by 2018. triOS College Business Technology Healthcare in Ontario and Eastern College in Atlantic Canada will be stepping up to provide assistance to those being displaced by offering a $1500 bursary towards a diploma program of their choice.
The job cuts at Hudson’s Bay, along with other announced retail chain store closures such as HMV, Danier, Jacob, Smart Set, and others has impacted thousands of Canadians.
