Ottawa may be throwing its hat into the race to become home to Amazon’s second North American campus.
The world’s largest online retailer plans to open a second North American campus — dubbed HQ2 — that Amazon says could be just as big as the existing site in Seattle.
The company is asking local and state governments, including ones in Canada, to submit proposals for a development that will likely cost more than $5 billion US over the next 15 to 17 years and give the winning city or town an enormous economic boost. Amazon is already one of the biggest employers in Seattle and expects the new headquarters to house as many as 50,000 workers, many of them new hires.
Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson, replying to several people flagging the announcement to him, tweeted Thursday: “I’ve asked staff to review the application process with a view to being part of the competition.”
Cities have until next month to apply through a special website, and the company said it will make a final decision next year.
Toronto Mayor John Tory said in a statement Thursday that city staff plan to put together a bid, as well.
“I firmly believe that Toronto is a prime candidate to host Amazon’s second headquarters in North America,” Mayor John Tory told CBC News in a statement, citing that “bold, innovative” city’s technology talent.
The mayor of Memphis, Tenn., was also quick to express interest.
For the new campus, Amazon said, it’s looking for metropolitan areas with more than one million people — locations with the potential to attract and retain technical talent.

这是一个很多城市竞标大公司发展计划的项目, OTTAWA 应该有类似Business Development的部门, 养兵千日用兵一时,如果真的能把Amazon拉过来, 真是功德无量. 钱好说, 商业用地,住宅, 配套, 来钱的地方多了去了, 关键是能否有类似当年洛衫机申请奥运会的由波锣丝这样的能人. 这是Amazon 20年的计划, 拉过来50000人, 又拉动10万配套服务下游行业就业. 村里的GDP可能要翻3倍.
