(Reuters) - Amazon.com Inc said on Tuesday it planned to build a new fulfillment center in Canada’s capital Ottawa that would create more than 600 full-time jobs.

The center, which is the company’s fifth in the province of Ontario, will pick, pack and ship large items such as household decor, sporting equipment and gardening tools, the company said.

The Seattle-based company currently employs more than 2,000 full-time workers at its existing Ontario facilities in Brampton, Mississauga and Milton. In total, Amazon has more than 6,000 employees in Canada.
