MySpace Canada office now empty

by Rob Lewis | Culture

One year after declaring that Canada is a priority and appointing Dave Stevens as the General Manager for it's Canadian subsidiary, MySpace has shuttered its Toronto office.

Last month MySpace announced that they had laid off 30% of their staff in the United States (approximately 400 employees) and CEO Owen Van Natta's lay-off memo was shared across tech blogs.  “This restructuring plan crosses all U.S. divisions of the company and lowers the total number of domestic staff at MySpace to 1,000 employees.”

TechCrunch's Michael Arrington warned that MySpace wasn't done yet and that big international lay-offs were next with 100+ more cuts across the nearly 30 offices MySpace has around the world.

It turns out Arrington was right. The Canadian headquarters in Toronto is now empty and ex-employees are looking for work.
