Canada Bread Company has announced a series of cost-cutting measures at its Quebec facilities, including the closure of its St-Come-Liniere bakery in May.

The company says the 56 workers at the location will receive severance packages and be encouraged to seek employment at other Canada Bread facilities.

The products made at the St-Come-Liniere location will be baked at other operations in Quebec.

Toronto-headquartered Canada Bread is also shutting down its bakery in Beauport, Que., effective September.

It says it expects a majority of the 77 employees at the facility, which makes bread rolls, will be moved to its Vincent-Massey operation 10 kilometres away in Quebec City by March 2018.

However, the company can not say how many Beauport employees will be able start work at the Vincent-Massey bakery initially.
