New Investment, Jobs Coming to Eastern Ontario
The City of Cornwall and surrounding area will see the addition of over 130 new full-time jobs in Canada’s technology sector, thanks to an exciting new investment by Xplornet Communications Inc.
To support its continued growth across Canada, Xplornet today announced that renovations will begin shortly on a new multi-function regional office in Cornwall, Ontario. Cornwall was selected as the preferred location because of its strong local economy and the quality of its workforce.
In total, Xplornet will invest approximately $40 million over the next five years in its new Cornwall operations. The new offices will be located in the revitalized Weave Shed Complex in Cornwall’s Cotton Mills district, located in close proximity to downtown and within walking distance of St. Lawrence College.
In recent years, Xplornet has achieved significant growth to become Canada’s largest rural-focused Internet service provider. Next year will see a major expansion of its network, with the continued extension of its LTE Internet service combined with the launch of two new satellites offering Internet download speeds not previously seen in many parts of rural Canada. The new office is an important addition that will support the anticipated needs of customers in the Eastern Ontario region and throughout Canada.
For Cornwall and the surrounding region, the results will be significant:
Xplornet plans to create over 130 full-time, highly skilled jobs in the next five years, with attractive compensation packages.
Once fully operational, the office will support all core company functions, including technical service, customer care, sales, network, and corporate support. The office will be the first of its kind for Xplornet, with the implementation of proprietary technology that will enable the company to deliver customer care approaches not previously seen in the telecommunications sector.
Xplornet has been nationally recognized in four of the last five years as a Top Employer in Atlantic Canada, has been named a Canadian Telecom Employer of Choice for three years in a row, and has a proven reputation for developing and promoting internal talent.
