Amazon opens a state-of-the-art robotic fulfillment centre in Calgary

Statement issued by Rick Christiaanse, Invest Alberta CEO

“Today marks a significant milestone for Alberta as we celebrate the launch of Amazon’s latest Alberta project: a state-of-the-art robotic fulfillment centre in Calgary spanning 2.8 million square feet. This investment is both an economic boost with over 1500 new jobs and an endorsement of Alberta as a hub for innovation and growth.

“Amazon’s decision to expand here speaks volumes about what Alberta has to offer, including our prime location, strong infrastructure, skilled workforce, and growing consumer base. The YYC4 project is the latest in a series of investments, each strengthening the company’s logistical capacity. From distribution centres in both Calgary and Edmonton to the $4.3 billion AWS Canada West Region, to two of North America’s largest wind and solar projects that will help power its operations with 100 per cent renewable energy by 2030, Amazon’s commitment to Alberta is evident. Invest Alberta is thrilled to be part of this journey, supporting Amazon’s growth and sustainability goals.

“As Amazon continues to expand its footprint in Alberta, its investment in communities, infrastructure, and job creation contributes to the province’s economic growth and development, showcasing the power of high-impact investments on regional prosperity and sustainability.”
