North Bay is officially asking the provincial government to reconsider one part of its budget. The Liberal budget plans to trim the Apprenticeship Training Tax Credit, but the municipality is worried it could negatively impact up to 100 new jobs. Call centres use the tax credit to help train new workers. There are currently about 600 call centre jobs in North Bay, and one facility wants to hire up to 100 more employees. However, without the tax credit those jobs may be in jeopardy. The mayor of North Bay hopes the province will reconsider the option.
