The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today welcomed Amazon’s announcement that it will create 3,000 new jobs in Vancouver. Combined with the 1,000 new jobs announced by Amazon in November 2017, this will bring the company’s workforce in Canada to over 9,000 employees.
In addition to its office in Vancouver, Amazon employs over 500 British Columbians at its fulfillment centres in Delta and New Westminster, BC, and also operates subsidiary Abebooks.com, based in Victoria, BC. Interested candidates can find available openings by field or location at Amazon.jobs.
Navdeep Bains, Canadian Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development said, “One of our government’s top priorities is job creation for a strong and robust middle class in Canada. This exciting growth announcement by Amazon is proof that our plan is working. Global companies like Amazon see Canada as a strong place to invest because of our talented workforce and focus on innovation – that’s translating into more jobs for people in Vancouver. Congratulations to Amazon on your continued success – you have a committed partner in Canada.”
New office will open in 2020 and will enable Amazon to double its workforce in Vancouver. Across Canada, Amazon now has over 5,000 full-time, full-benefit employees.
