Amazon.com Inc said on Tuesday it plans to create 600 new technology jobs in downtown Toronto following the opening of a new 113,000 square foot office in Scotia Plaza.

Currently, Amazon has more than 800 corporate employees in Toronto.

Amazon.com announced Monday that it is opening a new distribution centre in Leduc County, just south of Edmonton, with plans to create 600 full-time jobs by 2020.

The e-commerce company says the approximately 92,900-square-metre (one-million-square-foot) centre in Nisku, Alta., will be the company’s 11th distribution facility in Canada, and its second in Alberta.

It already operates a similar facility in Rocky View County in southern Alberta, where it employs more than 1,500 full-time workers.

Amazon’s other fulfilment facilities are located in British Columbia and Ontario.
