New Jersey company gets financial help to expand in Nova Scotia

HALIFAX - A New Jersey-based technology company would get payroll rebates of about $3.4 million if it creates 300 jobs in Nova Scotia over a five-year period as part of its expansion plans.

IGATE Corp. does work a number of companies in the banking, financial services, insurance, health care, manufacturing, media, energy and retail sectors.

The company has an office in the Halifax area and plans to expand its operations in the province.

Nova Scotia Business Inc. says the company would get a lower payroll rebate if it creates fewer than 300 jobs.
