Online jobs abound in Montreal
Montreal continues to demonstrate that it is the perfect place for both big-scale and small-scale companies working in the online world.
The Minister of Economic Development, Raymond Bachand, and the President and CEO of Computer Horizons Corp. (CHC) (Nasdaq: CHRZ), Dennis Conroy, today announced a new expansion project for the Company’s technology solutions development centre in Montreal, which will provide for the creation of over 150 high-calibre jobs by June 2007. CHC provides professional information technology services to a broad array of vertical markets, such as financial services, healthcare, pharmaceutical, telecom, consumer packaged goods, as well as the federal government, through its subsidiary RGII Technologies, Inc.
This expansion is supported by the Major Employment-Generating Project fiscal measure administered by Investissement Quebec. This aims to consolidate the development of information technologies as well as encouraging the creation and expansion of companies. Through this measure, eligible corporations can obtain a tax credit until December 31, 2016.
A similar expansion in work force is announced by Bug Tracker, which has its larger office here in Montreal and a second office in Paris, France. The company was founded by Antoine Carre in 1998. It provides testing and localization services for manufacturers of video games for all types of devices.
Whatever scale your online company may work at, the creativity and vitality of Montreal provides an ideal location for growing businesses.
