Amazon currently employs 5,500 full- and part-time workers in B.C., which includes new workers at its new site in the Township of Langley opened in February. This week Amazon announce plans to hire up to 2,950 workers. 950 of these new jobs will support three existing three fulfilment centres in New Westminister, Annacis Island, and Deltaport’s industrial park. Amazon is planning to open four additional sites in the Lower Mainland by end of 2021, including a new 450,000 square foot advanced robotics fulfilment centre at the Port of Vancouver’s Richmond Logistic Hub which will account for 1,000 jobs. The other three new sites and 1,000 jobs will encompass new delivery stations in Pitt Meadows and Delta, and a sorting centre in Langley. Amazon said last week that it has invested more than $3 billion in B.C. in the past decade.
