Canada: Walmart Canada laying off employees in store restructuring
Walmart Canada is laying off an unspecified number of employees as it undergoes a restructuring.
Spokesman Alex Roberton would not disclose how many employees would lose their jobs. He denied a media report that 475 workers would be let go, saying the actual number is lower.
He said in a statement that the company has adjusted its store structure so associates can work across the entire store rather than a specific department.
Walmart Canada employed about 91,000 associates as of October 2016.
The company operates 410 stores in Canada, according to its website.
