Pixar Canada Closes, 100 Jobs Lost
The Pixar location in Vancouver, Canada has been shut down, and 100 employees lost their jobs. According to Disney spokesperson Barb Matheson:
A decision was made to refocus operations and resources under the one roof, Staff were just told today. Not great news, obviously.
Another Pixar spokesperson revealed:
The team at Pixar Canada is incredibly talented and we are so proud of the excellent work we have produced there. However, as we look at the creative and business needs of our studio, we’ve made the decision to refocus our efforts and resources under one roof in Emeryville and will be closing the studio in Vancouver.
The Pixar Canada employees who still have their jobs will be relocated to Pixar’s headquarters in Emeryville, California.
