The Indian IT services provider plans to generate 500 jobs in the Toronto region over the next three years.

Besides, it will enable Infosys to better collaborate with clients for developing cross-functional solutions to persistent business challenges.

The Indian IT giant had previously pledged to double its workforce in Canada to 4,000 by 2023 amid increasing demand for training, learning, and re-skilling. Its new digital development center is expected to have an important role in the expansion and lead the development of digital capabilities and training for the next generation of IT talent to help Canadian businesses.
