Google Canada spokesperson Lauren Skelly confirmed in an email that notifications were being sent to staff impacted by the cuts announced last month.
Skelly wouldn't say how many Canadians are due to be laid off and in what departments or cities they work, but said Canada remains an important and priority market for Google.
However, LinkedIn posts showed software engineers and user experience designers in Kitchener, Ont. were among those that lost their jobs.
Sundar Pichai, the chief executive of Google and parent company Alphabet, told staff in mid-January that his company would be laying off 12,000 workers.
"Over the past two years we've seen periods of dramatic growth," he said, in a blog post revealing the cuts. "To match and fuel that growth, we hired for a different economic reality than the one we face today."
The reality that materialized pushed him to undertake a "rigorous" review across product areas and functions to ensure roles are aligned with the company's top priorities.
