(Adds comments from Uber on plans to pull out of Canada)
TORONTO, Sept 26 (Reuters) - Ride-hailing service Uber Technologies Inc said on Tuesday that it will stop operating in the Canadian province of Quebec next month, pulling out to avoid following tough new regulations announced last week.
Uber is pulling out of Canada's second-most populous province as it battles a decision to strip the company of its license to operate in London, the latest in a series of regulatory attacks on Uber as new Chief Executive Dara Khosrowshahi, seeks to rebuild the company's image.
Uber's Quebec general manager, Jean-Nicolas Guillemette, said the company would cease operations in the province on Oct. 14.
Uber employs more than 50 office workers in the province, where more than 10,000 drivers have worked for the company, he said. (Additional reporting by Arjun Panchadar in Bengaluru; Editing by Arun Koyyur, Bill Trott and Jim Finkle)
