Amazon’s investments have created thousands of good jobs across Canada at our local Tech Hubs, corporate offices, AWS Region (Montreal), fulfilment centres, sortation centres, and delivery stations. Small and medium businesses now make up approximately 60% of physical product sales in our store. We are a part of the communities around the world where our employees live and work. We bring the same innovation and energy to our neighborhoods and cities as we do to our work every day.
We value the opportunity to be a force for good in the lives of our customers and in communities around the world.
Our investments go far beyond creating jobs in communities and empowering small and medium businesses as they grow through selling in Amazon’s Store. We expand access to skill building for in-demand fields and work on urgent needs—from the nonprofits we support that help families in their journeys out of homelessness to the way we provide disaster relief to those in need.
Science World welcomed under-resourced kids and families to the building for a free Tech-Up Showcase presented by Amazon in a special event to reduce financial barriers and provide unique tech and science-learning experiences for students in Grades K-7.
