More than 300 frontline CBC and Radio-Canada employees outside Quebec have now been given notice that their jobs will disappear as a result of the cuts being made this spring. Below is a preliminary breakdown of how the locations are affected. The numbers include all job cuts: layoffs, voluntary retirements, contract non-renewals and abolition of vacant positions.
St. John’s 6
Thunder Bay 5
Corner Brook 3
Grand Falls 2

These numbers will likely change somewhat by the end of the summer, when the redundancy and layoff process is expected to be complete. However, virtually all CBC and Radio-Canada station will feel the effects of the cut.
