“If you look at the building we’re in now, we’re bursting at the seams. When you look at even what we have right now in the province, we have almost 120 open positions, 75 open positions in the city alone and we’re growing,” Nutrien’s president and CEO Chuck Magro said.

“We needed the space. We believed culturally that we want an open, modern, really technology-centric building.”
