I think it makes most sense to expand it in Ontario first given the population density but I really hope they extend it to more cities across Canada soon after.

I think proximity to the warehouse(s) is key.

It takes almost 24-hours to get a truck a from Toronto to Winnipeg. Same for Vancouver to Winnipeg. Alberta is closer but you're still looking at 12+ hours. I look forward to one-day delivery but am not expecting it anytime soon.

I'm pretty sure there's a warehouse in Calgary.
Strangely I almost never get anything from it unless it's a cross ship from Amazon.com but bought on .ca.

Yes, poor phrasing on my part. I meant Alberta was 12+ hours from Winnipeg.

There's a new warehouse opening in Alberta soon too, I believe.

From Wikipedia:

Canada

Alberta
Balzac[74] (YYC1)
Leduc County (YEG1), planned for 2020 opening

British Columbia
Annacis Island a part of Delta (YVR2)
New Westminster (YVR3)
Tsawwassen, under construction

Ontario
Brampton (YYZ3, YYZ4)
Caledon, under construction
Mississauga (YYZ1)
Milton (YYZ2)
Ottawa (YOW1), under construction

Many of my shipments originate from Calgary. I am in Edmonton. I assume that they are actually coming from Balzac.

Amazon Calgary

I suspect that service will be even faster once the one-million-square-foot warehouse Amazon facility opens just outside of Edmonton in 2020.

I'm a little shocked to see Victoria on the list.

So much potential for weather delays!

I wonder if they're doing their own delivery or contracting a 3rd party.

Like today for example. BC Ferries killed 7 and 9 tonight.

I'd assume they're still using shitty Dynamex.

Are they even still using them?
I haven't seen a Dynamex tag in quite a long time in Vancouver.
It's all been Amazon tags.
