BlackBerry to close Halifax offices, affecting more than 300 employees


While everyone has been expecting the layoffs to continue at BlackBerry and it's hardly news any more, I felt I have to write this announcement up simply because for me, it hits close to home. As part of their ongoing restructuring efforts, it has been announced that BlackBerry will shut down their Halifax, Nova Scotia operations as of January 10th, 2014. The closure of this location affects over 300 employees mostly trained as customer support representatives.
