Amazon Canada Brings Prime Free One-Day Delivery To 13 New Cities Across Canada

By Thomas Kenzaki

One of the best perks of having an Amazon Prime membership is getting free two-day delivery. Amazon keeps trying to get you the goods even faster and starting today 13 new cities across Canada will receive free Prime one-day delivery.

Here’s a list of the new cities that’ll receive Prime free one-day delivery:

  • Ancaster, ON
  • Brantford, ON
  • Cambridge, ON
  • Dundas, ON
  • Grimsby, ON
  • Hamilton, ON
  • Kitchener, ON
  • London, ON
  • Paris, ON
  • Waterloo, ON
  • Woodstock, ON
  • Quebec City, QC
  • Victoria, BC


These new cities join Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal,, Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver and bring the total number of Prime free one-day delivery cities to 19.

“All qualifying orders over $25 that are ordered prior to the cut-off time will arrive by 9 p.m. local time the very next day.”

To be eligible for Prime free one-day delivery the item(s) must show the Prime FREE One-Day icon and your order must be for at least $25. Orders placed before the cut-off time (11pm ET in Ontario, 9:45pm ET in Quebec, and 3:45pm PT in Victoria) will be delivered the next day for free. You must be a Prime member to receive this benefit.

Items qualifying for the free Prime one-day delivery will vary by region as the item must be available in a warehouse local to the delivery city. There are over 1 million Prime FREE One-Day eligible items in Ontario and Quebec, and over half a million in Victoria.

To see if your area is eligible for the new service you can visit the Amazon Prime Delivery page. Don't forget to check out our guide to see all the benefits that come from having an Amazon Prime membership.

      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.

      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 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.

      Yes, they're still using them here and they're still useless.

      Mississauga is 10 minutes away from that huge campus of a warehouse in Brampton.

      This makes Mississauga second on the list after Brampton

    • Yes, they are extending the list for one day Prime free but I also noticed that the regular members are now receiving the packages later than it used to be some weeks ago. Before, they were saying you'll get the package in let's say 6 days but the package was arriving in less than 3 days (for GTA for example). Now, with the recent changes, as it seems, the date they give is very accurate and you will have to wait indeed for those x days (6 days for my example). So I'm thinking they are shifting the focus toward the Prime members so that they can have more people signing up for a membership....
