Amazon.com to add 750 full time jobs at Calgary area fulfillment centre

Amazon.com Inc. says its first fulfillment centre in Alberta will add 750 full-time jobs to its Canadian workforce.

The employees will pick, pack, and ship items ordered from the Seattle-based e-commerce giant.

The Calgary-area facility is Amazon’s seventh fulfillment centre in Canada.

The company already employs more than 2,000 people at its centres in Ontario and British Columbia.

Including its corporate offices, development centres and other facilities, Amazon employs 4,400 people in Canada.

Calgary is one of the cities looking to host Amazon’s second headquarters. Toronto, Montreal, Edmonton and Halifax are among the others.
