Google announced in its blog on Monday morning that Google wants to acquire land in Warrenoys to build a data center of more than $ 735 million, with about thirty well-paid employees.
“The expansion of a company with the status of Google in Quebec confirms our position as one of the most dynamic and green centers of technology in the world,” said Pierre Fitzgibbon, Minister of Economy and Innovation.
When built, a data center can create between 300 and 500 jobs. After that, about thirty people will work there.
“Every day the demand for Google services increases and keeps pace with our physical infrastructure. Once we acquire the Beauharnois site, this site will guarantee us options to expand our data center infrastructure in Canada, when necessary for our business,” Google Canada said in its blog.
Hydro-Quebec told the newspaper on Monday that Google will not get a tax credit.
Google also still wants to welcome around 1,000 employees to its new offices on Viger Street in Montreal.
More than $ 3 million has been invested in Mila to support AI research in Quebec.
