The printing activities will be mainly transferred to the Transcontinental Transmag plant in Montréal. The regional plants of Transcontinental de la Capitale in Québec City and Transcontinental Qualimax in Gatineau will also take in some work.The Métropolitain plant currently has close to 60 employees.

TC Transcontinental hopes it will be able to offer employment opportunities to the majority of them within its other business units . Some job losses will result from the closure of the plant.  Transcontinental Métropolitain was built in 2003 and, in its early days, was primarily dedicated to printing La Presse daily newspaper and its related products. Over the years, other products,  newspapers of independent publishers and those of TC Media, were added on to the plant's book of business.
