Amazon bringing 3000 more jobs to Canada

Amazon bringing 3000 more jobs to Canada

The general manager of web services Jesse Dougherty said the new corporate positions will be focused on e-commerce technology, cloud computing and machine learning. "Thank you to Prime Minister Trudeau, Mayor Robertson, and all our partners across Vancouver and Canada for welcoming us and helping to foster a strong local innovation economy".

Justin Trudeau and the President of Amazon Canada just made a live public announcement about the massive expansion of the company's headquarters in downtown Vancouver. In addition to the 6,000 Canadians that are already employed by Amazon across the country.

"Our vibrant cities, which are home to some of the best talent in the world, are poised to attract premier investment that creates the jobs of tomorrow", Trudeau said in a statement.

Amazon already employs more than 6000 full-time workers across Canada, including more than 1000 researchers and engineers in Vancouver who primarily create new products and services for the company's global retail and Amazon Web Services (AWS) businesses.

Toronto was the only Canadian city to make the final cut for Amazon's second headquarters; however, the company is opening a second corporate office in Vancouver.

The event will take place outside the old Canada Post headquarters on Georgia Street, leading some to speculate it could become the site of the new Amazon office announced in November. They now operate a 156,000 square-foot location in TELUS Garden which opened to Amazon employees in 2015. The company expects to employ 5,000 people in Vancouver in the coming years.

Amazon is expanding in Vancouver again.

"There are many reasons why industry giants like Amazon choose to settle and grow in Canada", he said.

Amazon first established a presence in Vancouver in 2013.
