Infosys, a global leader in next-generation digital services and consulting, announced today that it will set up a digital development centre in Mississauga, and will create 500 high-quality jobs in the Toronto Region over the next three years.
Infosys serves businesses in the financial services, healthcare, communications, retail, and natural resources sectors. Artificial intelligence, data science, automation, and machine learning are the core capabilities that this centre would nurture and expand.
The digital development centre will span nearly 50,000 square feet and bring significant investment from Infosys to the country. It will train, upskill, and reskill employees in the technologies needed to help Canadian businesses accelerate their digital transformation.
“We are proud to power digital Canada through the skills of the future and do our part in supporting post-pandemic economic recovery. The Toronto Region met all of our criteria when deciding where to set up the digital development centre, create new jobs and scale our business offerings,” said Ravi Kumar, President, Infosys.
“Talent and high-tech know-how are in abundance, there is a real aptitude for new workplace development strategies, and many of our clients are based here. Even better, this will enable us to be part of an ecosystem that reaches across the region, linking the private sector with innovative research and learning institutions in Canada”, he added.
This is Infosys’ second significant announcement in the Canadian market this year, having announced in March that they will be bringing 500 jobs to Calgary, and it doesn’t stop here, they have plans to double their Canadian workforce to 4,000 employees by 2023.
