Amazon Canada Fulfillment Services announced plans Monday to locate a new fulfillment centre on Annacis Island in Delta.
The 200,000-square-foot facility will be the company's first on the West Coast and is expected to create more than 100 new full-time jobs.
"We are excited to expand our fulfillment network to British Columbia, bringing new jobs and continued investment to the country while improving the experience of shopping on Amazon.ca for customers," said Brennan Weber, site leader for ACFS.
The facility is expected to open this fall.
"We're pleased that ACFS will grow its presence in Canada with its new fulfillment centre here in Delta, British Columbia," said Premier Christy Clark. "Our community welcomes the jobs it will bring to the region and the increased service it will provide to Amazon.ca shoppers in the area to be able to receive their packages from a facility on the West Coast."
The Delta facility will be ACFS second fulfillment centre in Canada, bringing its total Canadian footprint to more than 700,000 square feet. ACFS currently has a fulfillment centre in Mississauga, Ontario.
