Amazon has announced plans to build a 450,000 square foot warehouse facility on Tsawwassen First Nation lands at Deltaport.
The online giant says it will create more than 700 full-time jobs.
It will be the company’s third fulfillment centre in BC, where 800 people are employed, along with its tech hub in Vancouver that employs 1500.

Once open, the new facility will be Amazon’s tenth fulfillment facility in Canada and join Amazon’s current fulfillment centres in Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario.
Workers at the plant will pick, pack and ship customer items.
Premier John Horgan, in a statement, says “Amazon, is once again choosing British Columbia to create good jobs.”
