Amazon Canada made an announcement last week that its first fulfilment centre in the province will be set up in Lachine, bringing in 300 full-time positions.
The site is expected to be up and ready for next year’s holiday season rush.
“We’re excited about our growth in Montreal, which gives us the opportunity to better serve our customers across Quebec,” said Amazon Canada Vice-President Alexandre Gagnon.
“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,” Gagnon added.
Workers at the centre are responsible for shipping and packing items for customers and the new Lachine employees will be part of Amazon’s global workforce of more than a half-million workers.
