FREDERICTON _ A new software testing company in New Brunswick is expected to create 145 information technology jobs, all of which will be filled by aboriginal people.

Professional Aboriginal Testing Organization _ or PLATO _ is the creation of Fredericton businessman Keith McIntosh.

The new employees will come from a six-month software testing course created by McIntosh.

PLATO now has 10 employees delivering outsourced testing services, and up to 87 more jobs will be created as students complete the training program.

Another 58 jobs will be created at Professional Quality Assurance, where McIntosh is the co-chief executive officer.

The provincial government will provide up to $982,000 in payroll rebates for the creation of the new jobs.
