Amazon Looking to create 3,500 jobs in Toronto and Vancouver

Jesse Dougherty, an Amazon VP and its Vancouver site lead, called the plans a reaffirmation of Amazon’s commitment to Canadian cities “at this critical time.”

Three thousand of the new jobs will be in Vancouver, with 500 in Toronto. The additional jobs also come with preparation to expand Amazon’s physical footprint.

In Vancouver, the company said it will expand its footprint at the former Canada Post building by more than 680,000 square feet. Amazon is set to lease 18 floors in the building’s North Tower and 17 floors in its South Tower, as the sole corporate tenant. The development of the site is currently underway and set to be completed by 2023. Read more via Betakit
