Infosys to set up a new digital development centre in Canada
Infosys is setting up a new digital development centre at its largest Canadian office in Mississauga. The move is aimed at creating 500 jobs in the Toronto Region over the next three years.
Infosys had previously committed to double its Canadian workforce to 4,000 employees by 2023. The digital development centre will play a key role in this expansion. In the last two years, Infosys has created thousands of jobs across Toronto, Vancouver, Ottawa, Montreal, and most recently, Calgary.
The digital development centre will train, upskill, and reskill employees in the technologies needed to help the country’s businesses accelerate their digital transformation. It will also enable Infosys to better collaborate with clients to develop cross-functional solutions to pressing business challenges.
Commenting on the development, Ontario Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade, Vic Fedeli said: “Ontario's deep talent pool, cutting edge innovation ecosystem, and competitive business costs make our province an ideal place for investment. We thank Infosys for investing in Ontario’s post-pandemic recovery by developing this global competency hub, tapping local talent, and partnering with local academic institutions to help develop a skilled workforce that will deliver new solutions, and, in turn, help other businesses thrive and grow.”
While the digital development centre is the first of its kind in Canada for Infosys, it is based on the proven model of six similar digital centres in the United States, which hire from local colleges and provide training and digital career paths.
