Amazon Canada plans to open its first fulfillment centre in Quebec. The new site will be located in Lachine on the island of Montreal.
The new facility is expected to create more than 300 full-time jobs in the Greater Montreal area. This new site will launch in time for the 2020 holiday shopping season.
“We’re excited about our growth in Montreal, which gives us the opportunity to better serve our customers across Quebec,” said Alexandre Gagnon, Vice President of Amazon Canada.
“The Greater Montreal area has a talented workforce, and we are committed to providing the area with great job opportunities that have comprehensive pay and benefits.”
Associates at this new facility will pick, pack, and ship items for customers, ranging from toys and pet products to small electronics.
