Amazon creates new jobs

Amazon says it plans to create 600 new tech jobs in Toronto.

The online retail behemoth says the jobs will be in fields including software development, machine learning and cloud computing.

The announcement comes as Amazon is expanding its office in Toronto's downtown core.

The city was on the short list to host the company's highly coveted second headquarters, but eventually lost out to New York City and Arlington, Va.

Had the Toronto region won that bid, it would have landed 50,000 Amazon jobs.

Amazon says it currently has more than 800 corporate employees in Toronto.
