Torstar, the company which owns the Toronto Star has announced that 52 employees are to be let go.
The cuts will come from the Toronto Star newsroom where 22 employees will be laid of, 19 of whom are employed full time.
A further 26 temporary staff at the paper will lose their jobs, mostly from the newspaper’s recently launched tablet app Star Touch, while four positions are being cut at its Metro newspaper chain.
The layoffs come amid shrinking circulation numbers and a fall in adverting revenue.
Torstar reported its second quarter results last month, posting a $23.9-million loss.
