Infosys, a global leader in next-generation digital services and consulting, today announced that it will establish a new digital development centre at its largest Canadian office in Mississauga. This is aimed at creating 500 high quality jobs in the Toronto Region over the next three years.
Spanning nearly 50,000 square feet and bringing significant investment from Infosys to the country, this digital development centre will train, upskill, and reskill employees in the technologies needed to help Canadian businesses accelerate their digital transformation.
The centre also enables Infosys to better collaborate with clients to develop cross-functional solutions to pressing business challenges. Infosys, in the Toronto Region, currently serves businesses in the financial services, healthcare, communications, retail, and natural resources sectors. Artificial Intelligence (AI), data science, automation, and machine learning (ML) are the core capabilities that this centre would nurture and expand.
“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.
While the digital development centre is the first of its kind in Canada for Infosys, it is based on the proven model of six similar digital centres in the U.S. which hire from local colleges and provide training and digital career paths. Infosys’ unique training and education infrastructure builds a tech-savvy and agile workforce with the skills and experience that clients need to become fully digital businesses.
“Ontario’s deep talent pool, cutting edge innovation ecosystem, and competitive business costs make our province an ideal place for investment,” said Ontario Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade, Vic Fedeli.
“We are thrilled that Infosys has chosen to invest in Mississauga and has committed to bringing hundreds of jobs along with training opportunities to our local workforce,” said Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie.
