Amazon has confirmed that it will build a massive distribution center in Ottawa
“Ontario continues to be a great place for Amazon to do business and we look forward to adding a fulfillment center in the National Capital Region,” Glenn Sommerville, director of Amazon operations in Canada, said in a statement.
“Our ability to expand in Ontario and create more than 600 new jobs is the result of two things: incredible customers and an outstanding workforce. Amazon is committed to providing great opportunities for employment and creating a positive economic impact for the region,” Sommerville added.
Amazon has selected real estate and construction company Broccolini to build the “built-to-suit fulfillment center” at a site near Boundry Road and Highway 417.
Broccolini says that it will be the largest industrial facility ever to be constructed in the National Capital Region and is expected to create more than 600 new full-time jobs once operational.
Construction is expected to be completed in 2019.
