Associates at the new robotics facility will pick, pack, and ship small items to customers ranging from toys and baby products to small electronics, said Amazon in a press release.
"We're excited about our growth in Toronto, which gives us the opportunity to better serve our customers in the region," said Vibhore Arora, director of regional operations of Amazon Canada. "The Greater Toronto Area has a talented workforce, and we are committed to providing the area with job opportunities that have great pay and benefits."
Full-time employees at Amazon receive competitive hourly wages including medical, vision and dental coverage, a group RRSP plan, stock awards, 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.
In total, Amazon employs more than 10,000 people working at fulfillment centres, corporate offices, development centres, and other facilities throughout Canada in Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba and Quebec. Amazon currently employs more than 4,000 full-time associates in Ontario, and an additional 1,000 employees at its two Toronto tech hub locations. In 2018, Amazon announced plans to create more than 6,000 new jobs across the country.
"We're excited to welcome Amazon's first fulfillment centre in the city of Toronto and the more than 600 new, good jobs that will be created in Scarborough," said Toronto Mayor John Tory. "This new facility, in addition to Amazon's growing tech hub in our city's downtown, shows that Amazon is continuing to invest in Toronto and the incredible workforce we have here."
Broccolini is developing the project in partnership with owner Manulife Investment Management.
