Winnipeg-based bus manufacturer NFI Group Inc. will permanently lay off about 300 employees in the city as it struggles to cope with the COVID-19 crisis.

NFI, the parent company of New Flyer, made the announcement in an update to investors March 24.

The company said the permanent layoffs in Winnipeg would occur at two other subsidiaries: Motor Coach Industries and Carfair, an NFI-owned parts manufacturer.
