Walmart Canada is laying off an unspecified number of employees as it undergoes a restructuring.

Spokesman Alex Roberton would not disclose how many employees would lose their jobs. He denied a media report that 475 workers would be let go, saying the actual number is lower.

He said in a statement the company had adjusted its store structure so associates could work across the entire store rather than a specific department.

Walmart Canada employed about 91,000 associates as of October 2016.

The company operates 410 stores in Canada, according to its website.
