Amazon to create more than 600 full-time jobs in Ottawa
Amazon announced plans for a new fulfillment center in Ottawa, Ontario's eastern suburb of Orleans. The 1-million square foot customer fulfillment facility is Amazon's fifth in Ontario, creating more than 600 full-time jobs with benefits starting on day one. Amazon currently employs more than 2,000 full-time associates at its existing Ontario facilities in Brampton, Mississauga, and Milton. The new facility will join Amazon's network of current fulfillment centers located in Ontario, British Columbia, and Alberta. Associates at this facility will pick, pack, and ship large items like household decor, sporting equipment and gardening tools. In total, Amazon employs more than 6,000 employees throughout Canada working at corporate offices, development centers, and other facilities.
