“Amazon has been providing residents of Yellowknife and Whitehorse with access to affordable goods and everyday products for years,” said Adam Baker, vice president of Amazon’s global transportation services. “We are extremely proud to create a faster delivery experience for our Prime customers and deepening our efforts to increase important access to goods for northern communities at the same cost as southern Canada.”
