Mint Lays Off Workers

WINNIPEG - 56 people have received temporary layoff notices at the Royal Canadian Mint in Winnipeg.

The Mint says prolonged effects of the pandemic and ongoing geopolitical instability are disrupting global markets which is limiting demand for coins it makes for other countries.

Prior to the layoffs, there were 351 people working at the local facility.

The Mint says the affected employees will be offered transitional support.
