Globe and Mail: ProQuest Shutting Down Canadian Operations

The Globe and Mail is reporting that American database and reference book publisher ProQuest is planning to shut most of its Canadian operations by the end of this year.

Staff at the Toronto offices of the Micromedia ProQuest subsidiary have apparently been told that "most of the operation will be moved to Ann Arbor, Mich., affecting roughly 70 jobs at its Canadian business ..."

Micromedia ProQuest publishes CBCA (Canadian Business and Current Affairs), Canadian Newstand, Canadian Research Index, many government document collections on microfiche, Associations Canada, Canadian Almanac & Directory, Directory of Libraries in Canada, and Financial Services Canada.
