The Liberals are committing to adding more federal jobs in Greater Sudbury if they are re-elected on Oct. 21.

Currently there are nearly 3,100 employees working two separate shifts at the Sudbury Tax Centre including 1,853 permanent employees, 1,152 part-time employees and 74 students.

“In the next couple of years, there will be other opportunities to move federal government jobs to Sudbury,” Lefebvre said. “If elected, I will continue to work with senior government staff to create more quality employment opportunities for Sudburians.”

Paul Lefebvre fighting for more federal jobs for Sudbury

Sudbury MP Paul Lefebvre says that if re-elected for a second term, he will work to add to the number of federal jobs in Sudbury.

In 2017, Service Canada announced it would be expanding the range of services offered in its downtown Sudbury offices, and would be hiring 83 new permanent, full-time employees. In Sudbury, Service Canada operates a regional Employee Insurance Call Centre and Delivery Operations Centre to improve access to Canada’s EI program.

Also in 2018, Canada Revenue Agency announced it was adding a new shift and new services for which it would need to hire more than 1,000 new permanent, full-time employees, as well as create some part-time and student employment opportunities.

Currently, there are 3,079 employees working two separate shifts at the Sudbury Tax Centre, including 1,853 permanent employees, 1,152 part-time employees and 74 students. The addition of the new staff and second shift make the Sudbury Tax Centre the largest tax processing centre in Canada.

The new jobs are part of the Liberal government’s commitment to restoring much-needed government services following a decade of Conservative cuts, Lefebvre said.

But that work is not done yet, he said.

“In the next couple of years, there will be other opportunities to move federal government jobs to Sudbury,” Lefebvre said. “If elected, I will continue to work with senior government staff to create more quality employment opportunities for Sudburians.”

“I am proud of the restoration of government services and of the new, good-paying jobs that go with it,” Lefebvre said. “These investments have resulted in more year-round stable permanent and term employment opportunities in Sudbury.”
