The cost of downsizing junior high-tech employees

Question:

I run a small internet company in Ontario and have about 20 employees. The company is currently experiencing financial difficulties, and I am looking into the possibility of reducing some of my costs by terminating the employment of several junior employees. Would I be able to do so without running into any legal problems?
