Some of the new positions will involve robotics and cloud computing in addition to other priorities, the Boston Globe reported. "Canadians share your passion for invention and your commitment to excellence - and that's why we are excited to see Amazon grow here in Vancouver".

"Amazon's decision to bring another 3,000 jobs to Vancouver is great news for our city's booming innovation economy", Mayor Gregor Robertson said.

The plan is unrelated to Amazon's search for a second headquarters that attracted 238 bids from 43 USA states, as well as from Washington and Puerto Rico, six Canadian provinces, and three Mexican states. With state-of-the-art amenities and an easily accessible location for its employees, the new Development Centre will sit above a city landmark. The workers in Boston primarily handle Alexa, Amazon Web Services and Audible.

The company is opening a 430,000-square-foot office in WS Development's Seaport Square project - a 7.6 million-square-foot development along the waterfront. Since 2011, Amazon has invested more than $400 million in the city, adding corporate offices and fulfilment centers.

Amazon plans to bring thousands of tech jobs to Boston as part of a major expansion into the Seaport District.

Trudeau joined executives and employees at the site of Amazon's future 416,000-sq. -foot (38,688-sq. -meter) offices in downtown Vancouver's old post office.

Amazon, which employs more than 1,000 people in Vancouver, in November announced a lease that, from 2020, would give the company space for an additional 2,000 workers.

"With this bold investment, Vancouver just locked in the silver medal in the race for Amazon HQ2", said Sean Elbe, Sector Development Manager, Technology at Vancouver Economic Commission.

Prime Minister Trudeau was also in attendance and said there are many reasons why industry giants such as Amazon choose to settle and grow in Canada.
