Amazon Prime is expanding its Canadian footprint.

The Seattle-based company announced on Monday that it is expanding its free, one-day delivery service that comes with an Amazon Prime membership to 13 additional cities and towns across Canada.

Mike Strauch, Amazon Canada’s country manager, said in a statement that the expansion will make shopping for Canadian customers “much easier.”

“Our ultimate goal is to continue to bring the benefits of Prime to as many Canadian customers as possible,” Stauch said in a statement. 

The 13 cities, 11 of which are in Ontario, include Ancaster, Brantford, Cambridge, Dundas, Grimsby, Hamilton, Kitchener, London, Paris, Waterloo and Woodstock, Ont. as well as Quebec City, Que. and Victoria, B.C. All eligible orders over $25 placed before cut-off times will arrive by 9 p.m. the following day, including on weekends.

Last month, Amazon Canada introduced a discounted membership for students, with monthly options for $3.99 and annual memberships of $39. Last summer, the company introduced a new monthly membership that costs consumers $7.99, an alternative from the annual membership that comes in at $79.
