Infosys delivers on its commitment to power digital Canada by continuing to hire Canadian workers and global talent, while shrinking the IT skills gap through sustained investments in training.
In partnership with local educational ecosystems, Infosys will work to aggressively recruit and upskill talent from major Canadian universities, technical institutions, and community colleges, helping build the technological capabilities that Canadian enterprises need to compete in an increasingly digital world. To help these enterprises accelerate their digital transformation journey, Infosys will combine the technical skills and strengths of these new employees with the experience of the company's top global talent.
Within the last two years, Infosys has created 2,000 jobs across Toronto, Vancouver, Ottawa and Montreal with plans for further expansion across the country. The company will also be hiring tech talent from fourteen educational institutions across the country including University of Calgary, Southern Alberta Institute of Technology, University of British Columbia, University of Toronto, University of Waterloo-, building a strong pipeline to expand the critical skills needed to accelerate digital transformation.
We are thrilled to expand our presence in Canada and advance our commitment to hiring top tech talent across major hubs. Calgary is a natural next step as part of our Canadian expansion and represents a significant and promising market for Infosys. The city is home to a thriving talent pool that the Covid-related economic downturn has impacted. We will tap into this talent and offer skills and opportunities that will build on the city's economic strengths
