Videotron set to create 500 new jobs – Canada

The Canadian MVNO and telecommunications company Videotron has announced that it will create in the region of 500 new full-time jobs by the end of 2009. The jobs will be spread between areas such as engineering and information technology through to customer service, technical support, finance, marketing, construction, network maintenance and human resources.

The new jobs will come largely as a result of the company's decision to construct a new wireless network which is expected to cost in the region of 0.8 and 1.0 bln Canadian dollars (790 Mln USD).

Robert Depatie, Videotron’s President and Chief Executive Officer commented: "In this period of economic uncertainty, Videotron is glad it can make positive contributions to the Quebec economy by creating a significant number of jobs and solid career opportunities."
