Cognizant is expanding its operations in Canada, supporting growing client demand with a new global technology and service delivery center in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Plans call for Cognizant to create up to 1,250 new jobs for IT and digital professionals over the next seven years at the new center, located at 6940 Mumford Road, Suite 210, Halifax, NS B3L 0B7.
“We chose Halifax as our next expansion location in Canada to support our growing number of clients, and we look forward to contributing to the region’s vibrant technology community,” said Jay Macisaac, Cognizant’s Canadian Head of Delivery Centers. “We are pleased to be supporting the growth of the region with the creation of new employment opportunities and are grateful to the Province for their partnership and support of Cognizant expanding in Nova Scotia.”
Nova Scotia Business Inc (NSBI) will help support Cognizant’s job creation through two payroll rebate agreements approved by the Province of Nova Scotia.
Nova Scotia has been recognized as a hub for diversified information technology businesses, and as a region rich in tech talent, fueled by top educational institutions and world-renowned research centers. Cognizant also has operations across three offices in Toronto and one in Mississauga.
