Posted July 31, 2018 04:01:00Canada has been a huge target of Amazon, which has set up headquarters there for a year.
This summer, it said it would invest more than $3 billion in the country, adding to $2 billion it already has invested in Canada.
It is also making acquisitions, most notably the acquisition of the Canadian-based Amazon.ca, which makes its website in Canada for Amazon Prime members.
Canada is the fifth-largest market for Amazon in terms of sales volume, according to research firm Euromonitor International.
And with the company expanding its business there, it has become a major target for the US government, which recently said it wants to increase its investment in Canada in an effort to counter the threat from China.
