Amazon’s Canadian employees stand at 5,000 according to its latest quarterly report. These workers are represented across Ontario, Quebec and British Columbia. These members are expected to grow with the company’s announcement of plans to have a new fulfillment center in Calgary. The Seattle-based tech giant commands a 541,900 – strong workforce worldwide.
