Bombardier cutting 1,750 aerospace workers

Most of the cuts come in Montreal, but some workers in Toronto and Belfast, Ireland won't escape the axe

MONTREAL—Bombardier confirms it will cut more than 1,750 employees in Canada and Northern Ireland over the coming months to adjust for weak demand for some of its business jets.

About 1,000 of the lost jobs will be in Montreal, where Bombardier has its main operations, while 480 are in Toronto and 280 in Belfast.

Bombardier says it is reducing production of its Global 5000 and Global 6000 aircraft, the largest of its business jets.

The cuts will begin in June and continue until the first quarter of 2016.
