Just a few days after news that it’s buying Whole Foods came out, Amazon has announced it is officially opening its new corporate office in Toronto.

On Tuesday, Premier Kathleen Wynne made the announcement with Amazon Canada, who already employ 600 people in the city. According to the province, Amazon joins tech leaders such as Facebook, Thomson Reuters, and Shopify in choosing Ontario to do business and develop next-generation technologies.

“Ontario has all the right conditions to lead the world in innovation and technology,” said Wynne in a statement. “Companies like Amazon are coming to our province because of our diverse and highly skilled workers and our strong business sector. I am pleased that Amazon is expanding here — giving people well-paying, rewarding jobs and driving continued innovation in Ontario.”

Ninety per cent of the jobs at Amazon’s Toronto office will be highly skilled technical positions, according to a Government of Ontario press release.

The Toronto office will contribute to some of Amazon’s highest-priority global technology development projects, including Amazon Fulfillment Technologies, the voice-controlled intelligent personal assistant Alexa and Amazon Web Services.
