Canadian government, business celebrate investment into local economy, global commerce
TORONTO, Nov. 30 /CNW/ -
What: With the country having experienced its first trade deficit in
a generation, UPS Canada is reinforcing its commitment to
Canadian global trade with a multi-million dollar expansion of
its GTA hub - the biggest investment of the company in Canada
in 2009. The new facility will allow UPS to increase its
capacity, filling a critical need in Canada's export market.
The facility will generate new jobs in Vaughan, further
reinforcing UPS's position as the second largest employer in
the city. The opening of the new facility in early December
will also allow UPS to better manage the anticipated boom in
UPS Chairman, other global executives and federal, local and
regional dignitaries will be present to celebrate the opening
of the expanded facility and speak about the increasingly
urgent need to bolster Canada's involvement in global trade.
