Same-day delivery now available to Amazon Prime members in Toronto and Vancouver

The day Canadian Amazon Prime members have been waiting for has finally arrived.

Jeff Bezos and company announced on Tuesday morning that free same-day delivery is now available to Prime members in Toronto and Vancouver on orders above $25. Amazon says the delivery option is available seven days a week. Orders placed in the morning will arrive later in the day, while those placed during the evening will make their way to customers the next day.

After launching the service in the U.S. in 2005, Amazon brought Prime to Canada in 2013, though it did so without some of the music and movie streaming tie-ins that are available to U.S. members. Prime costs $79 per year in Canada.

“Prime was developed to make shopping on Amazon fast and convenient, and Prime members in Canada can now enjoy fast, unlimited, free Prime delivery seven days a week,” said Alexandre Gagnon, vice-president of Amazon Canada, in a statement issued to MobileSyrup. “We keep making Prime better, and as our operational capabilities grow, we continue to increase product selection and enhance delivery options that customers in Canada enjoy.”
