Vancouver-based technology company expands to Nova Scotia, gets payroll rebate

HALIFAX - A Vancouver-based technology company will be eligible for almost $1.3 million payroll rebates in Nova Scotia if it creates 100 jobs in the province over a five-year period.

Nova Scotia Business Inc. says FCV Technologies Ltd. chose to locate in the province over other areas.

The company has been in business since 2005 and its clients have included Nike, WestJet, Best Buy and Mountain Equipment Co-op.

The deal with Nova Scotia Business requires FCV to create the equivalent of five full-time jobs in its first year.

The company is expected to fill a variety of positions including web developers, web designers, account project managers and digital strategists.
