Amazon to Open New Ottawa Facility

Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZ) said it plans to open a fulfillment center Orelans, an eastern suburb of Ottawa, Ontario.

The 1-million square foot customer fulfillment facility is Amazon’s fifth in Ontario, creating more than 600 full-time jobs, the company said. Amazon 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 fulfillment centres in Ontario, British Columbia, and Alberta. Employees at the new facility will pick, pack and ship large items such as household decor, sporting equipment and gardening tools.

Amazon employs more than 6,000 people throughout Canada working at corporate offices, development centres, and other facilities.
