Amazon Canada has announced plans to open its first fulfilment centre in Quebec. The new site will be located in Lachine on the island of Montreal and will create more than 300 new, full-time jobs with comprehensive pay and benefits, starting on day one, in a safe, innovative workplace. This new site will launch in time for the 2020 holiday shopping season.

Associates at this new facility will pick, pack, and ship items for customers, ranging from toys and pet products to small electronics. Full-time employees at Amazon receive comprehensive pay and benefits, including medical, vision and dental coverage, a group RRSP plan and performance-based bonuses starting on day one. Amazon also offers employees access to innovative programs like Career Choice, where it will pay up to 95 per cent of tuition for courses related to in-demand fields, regardless of whether the skills are relevant to a career at Amazon. Since the programme’s launch, more than 25,000 employees across the globe have pursued degrees in game design and visual communications, nursing, IT programming and radiology, to name a few, Amazon said in a press release.

“We’re excited about our growth in Montreal, which gives us the opportunity to better serve our customers across Quebec. 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,” Alexandre Gagnon, vice president of Amazon Canada said.
