The company announced Thursday that it intends to open Amazon HQ2, a second headquarters somewhere in North America where it plans to invest more than $ 5 billion and add up to 50,000 high paying jobs.
“I firmly believe that Toronto is a prime candidate to host Amazon’s second headquarters in North America,” Tory said. “We are a bold, innovative city that has plenty of homegrown tech talent. We also continue to attract talent and companies from around the world.
“We expect HQ2 to be a full equal to our Seattle headquarters,” Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said. “Amazon HQ2 will bring billions of dollars in up-front and ongoing investments, and tens of thousands of high-paying jobs. We’re excited to find a second home.”
