BlackBerry lays off Ottawa employees

CFRA News staff

BlackBerry layoffs in product development and wireless technology divisions continue as part of an ongoing cost-cutting plan.

120 reductions were announced at its headquarters in Waterloo, Ont. yesterday, but there were also layoffs here in Ottawa - with some reports of as many as 100 jobs having been cut.

The move is part of a plan announced last year to lower expenses, partly through the elimination of about 40 per cent of the company's workforce.
