Pixar Canada LogoPixar Canada has closed after three years and 100 employees are out of a job, reports The Province. Pixar has decided to concentrate its operations in Emeryville, California.

“A decision was made to refocus operations and resources under the one roof,” Barb Matheson, a spokesman for Pixar parent company Disney, said about the closing of the Vancouver office. “Staff were just told today. Not great news, obviously. It was just a refocusing of efforts and resources to the one facility.”

“The team at Pixar Canada has produced a wonderful slate of short films since opening in 2010, including ‘Air Mater,’ ‘Small Fry’ and ‘Partysaurus Rex,'” read a statement from Pixar. “As the dynamics of the animation industry continue to change rapidly, we continue to fine-tune our studio and its production processes. We have made the determination to refocus our creative and business efforts and resources under one roof. Pixar Canada will cease operations immediately.”
