Today, AWS added a third Availability Zone (AZ) to the AWS Canada (Central) Region to support the high demand of our growing Canadian customer base. 

This third AZ provides customers with additional flexibility to architect scalable, fault-tolerant, and highly available applications in AWS Canada (Central) Region, and will support additional AWS services in Canada. This launch brings AWS's global AZ total to 70 AZs within 22 geographic Regions around the world. See our newly released blog.  

Availability Zones located in AWS Regions consist of one or more discrete data centers, each with redundant power, networking, and connectivity, and each housed in separate facilities.
