Amazon to bring 3,500 new tech jobs to Vancouver and Toronto
Well, Amazon continues to expand its footprint in Canada, with the announcement of 3,500 new tech jobs coming to both Vancouver and Toronto. This is in addition to 800 jobs currently available across the country, and a whopping 21,000 existing Amazon employees.
So, it seems that the multinational company is pretty down with Canada. The vast majority of the new jobs will be in Vancouver, where a huge, 680,00 sq. ft. office space is coming in 2023. In Toronto, the company plans to lease an additional 130,00 sq. ft., creating 500 new jobs.
We’re proud to expand our Vancouver and Toronto Tech Hubs by adding 3,500 new corporate and technology jobs while empowering small businesses and investing in the community. https://t.co/LoXLWTK6vp
