Cirque du Soleil has announced it will lay off about 400 people between January and March.
On Wednesday, the company said the first round of layoffs would happen before the end of the month.
Cirque spokeswoman Renée-Claude Ménard said at least 50 per cent of the cuts will be taking place at the company’s Montreal headquarters.
“We’ve identified 400 positions [to be cut], the majority are in the Montreal operations, but we don’t have a definite number yet,” she said.
The cuts represent nearly nine per cent of the company’s total workforce.
