“We’re excited to continue to call the Greater Toronto Area home while creating new jobs in the community,” said Vito Zhong, general manager of Shein Canada. “Our new facility will help us cut shipping times for Canadian customers and reduce the number of packages in the international shipping stream – delivering on two of our key business priorities.”

The company, which was founded in China in 2012, is in the middle of a North American expansion and recently opened a warehouse in Whitestown, Indiana. Shein plans to fill 1,000 jobs by the end of 2022 and another 1,400 by the end of 2025.

The company is known for affordable fashion, beauty, and lifestyle products and is worth US$1 billion — more than H&M and Zara combined, according to a report by Bloomberg.

Despite its rise in the fashion scene, the company receives heavy criticism for a variety of issues including its labour practices.

A recent undercover investigation by Britain’s Channel 4 reveals sweatshop-like conditions at a Shein supplier factory in China.
