Canvas Now Available Across Canada

Canvas by Instructure, the open online learning management system (LMS) that makes teaching and learning easier, is now available in Canada. Higher education and K-12 learning institutions across the country now have the ability to access the full cloud-native Canvas LMS platform through AWS Canada.

Canvas provides flexible infrastructure and scalable resources for institutions of higher learning, allowing them to easily expand and diversify their offerings. Canvas' adaptability, mobile apps and open API help meet and address individual needs, and have led to significantly higher adoption rates when compared to other learning management systems.

Instructure built Canvas for Canadian higher learning and K-12 institutions on Amazon Web Services' (AWS) Canada Central Region located in Montreal, and Institutions across Canada have already adopted Canvas, including Ivey Business School and Schulich School of Business.

"Canvas is a trusted name in learning management because, among other reasons, we take privacy seriously as a technical, ethical and practical requirement of educational data," said Mitch Benson, senior vice president of product at Instructure. "We are proud to help Canadian educational institutions use Canvas to transform student learning experiences."
