The informatics company focuses on the health and social services market

"Global Village chose Nova Scotia because of the diverse talent pool of
industry specialists," said Marc Koehn, vice-president of business
development and chief operating officer of Global Village. "We see our
Halifax office as a nexus point for engagements with public- and
private-sector clients in Atlantic Canada, the northeastern United
States, as well as across the rest of the Canada."
Business Inc. (NSBI) has signed a five-year payroll rebate agreement
with Global Village to encourage the company to grow in Nova Scotia.
Global Village must create at least four full-time equivalent positions
in the first year. Then the company can earn a rebate on payroll for up
to 25 new positions.
If Global Village creates 25 new jobs, it
would add more than $5.7 million in salaries to Nova Scotia's economy,
and employees would pay provincial personal income taxes of about
$663,000. The company can earn up to $472,500 in payroll rebates through
NSBI's Strategic Investment Fund.
The company will be looking
to fill a variety of positions including senior, intermediate, and
junior level consultants, senior human resources professionals,
executive and administrative assistants, clinical and subject matter
experts, technical architects, and project managers.
Village's further expansion reinforces Nova Scotia as a destination of
choice for ICT companies specializing in niche markets such as
e-health," said John Ludovice, managing director, investment attraction
of Nova Scotia Business Inc. "Our region needs health informatics
consultants, and this represents an opportunity to create, develop and
retain these positions here in the province."
also encourages Global Village to hire new graduates of Nova Scotia
universities and community colleges, and helps attract skilled
professionals to live and work in the province. The rebate will help the
company with recruiting and relocating costs.
