Amazon to open Ottawa-based distribution centre, creating 1,000 jobs: reports

Recommended Posts



Amazon is gearing up to open a giant distribution centre in Ottawa that will create about 1,000 new jobs, several news outlets are reporting.

Citing unnamed sources, CTV Ottawa first reported Thursday that the mammoth online retailer will be the new tenant of a one million-square foot warehouse to be located at 5371 Boundary Road, close to Hwy. 417. CBC News later reported the news, based on confirmation from Andrew Leslie, MP for Orléans.

In a statement to Global News Friday afternoon, Amazon said it is “not yet commenting on any specific plans in Ottawa.”

“Amazon is constantly investigating new locations to support the growth and increase the flexibility of its North American network to address customers’ needs,” a spokesperson said in an email.

Global News has reached out to Broccolini and Leslie for comment. A spokesperson for Jan Harder, city councillor for Barrhaven and chair of the planning committee, said Harder has “nothing to report as of yet” on the matter.

Broccolini’s development manager James Beach told CTV that the company “definitely has a user in mind” for the warehouse facility.



I think this is great for my region plus it will be pretty close to where i live!

It's great for the feeder communities out that way. Had it been on the west side of Ottawa then communities all the way up to Pembroke could of benefited. But still a good news story.
