Canadians are not getting an Amazon Prime Day this year.

An Amazon spokesperson confirmed to Daily Hive that the company has cancelled the 2021 iteration of Prime Day in Canada.

“Due to the impact of COVID-19, we have decided to not move forward with Prime Day in Canada this year while we focus on the health and safety of our employees, customers and selling partners,” the spokesperson said.

Amazon previously announced that the annual two-day sale would be postponed in Canada.

Three of Amazon’s Ontario-based fulfillment centres were ordered to partially close in May after several workers tested positive for COVID-19.

In March, Ontario’s Ministry of Labour opened investigations into five Toronto-area Amazon warehouses due to COVID-19 and other workplace safety-related concerns.

Usually held in July, 2020’s Amazon Prime Day was delayed until October due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
