Primus Canada to expand employee base in Edmundston – Canada

Primus Canada, a leading MVNO subsidiary of Primus Group, is planning to increase its staffing levels by generating 113 new jobs, adding to their existing 200 employees, at its Edmundston customer contact centre in New Brunswick, Canada. According to Greg Byrne, Minister of Business, New Brunswick, the initiative is a part of the government's commitment to make economic development a priority for the region. Primus Telecommunications Canada will also be granted a forgivable loan of $7,500 for each of the 113 jobs created at the centre.

Greg Byrne added: "Our government is proud to support this thriving member of our customer contact centre industry. The strength of New Brunswick's knowledge industry is demonstrated when firms like Primus Canada continue to expand their strong base in our province. Our goal of a self-sufficient New Brunswick is closer to success when we partner with the private sector to create lasting employment for the people of New Brunswick."

Commenting on the development, Andrew Day, Senior Vice President of Residential Services at Primus Canada said: "Based on the continued success of our Edmundston Call Centre operation, Primus Canada is thrilled to create more employment opportunities for residents of New Brunswick, and at the same time provide more Canadian-based Customer Service for our valued customers across Canada."
