Canadian organizations can secure, store, and process their data on AWS with low latency across most of Canada by leveraging AWS’ infrastructure technology to build their businesses and run their applications in the cloud. The breadth and depth of AWS services can speed-up time-to-market, increase business agility, and allow a brand to go global in minutes, with just a few clicks.

With AWS edge location services like AWS WAF (Web Application Firewall), Amazon Route53, and API Gateway, companies will see improved network performance for their Canadian customers by having a closer public entry-point into the AWS optimized network, or leverage caching services. 

Canada is also home to Amazon CloudFront content delivery network (CDN) edge locations in Toronto, Ontario, and Montréal, Quebec.
