(Reuters) - Canada’s Bombardier Inc is laying off half the 1,100 workers at its Thunder Bay, Ontario, railway car plant, BNN Bloomberg reported on Tuesday, citing a federal government source.

Two major contracts in Ontario - for Toronto Transit Commission streetcars and Metrolinx GO Transit rail cars - are slated to wind down by the end of the year, the report said.

Bombardier did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.
