Quebecor closes Ottawa call centre; 100 jobs lost
About 100 people are out of work after Quebecor shut down its Sun Media call centre in Kanata.
The call centre, which operated out of a leased space on Hines Road, was closed on Thursday.
No reason was given for the shut down. However, it's believed the company wanted to consolidate call centre operations in Sarnia.
The workers sold subscriptions for Sun Media's newspaper chain, which includes the Ottawa Sun.
