Google Cloud Expands In Canada with Official Toronto Region Launch

Today, Google Cloud announces its new Toronto Cloud Platform region is now open. 

The new Toronto region will allow Canadian organizations across all industries – including TELUS, Accenture, Deloitte and Scotiabank, among others – to build faster, more efficient applications that better serve their customers. The new cloud region also offers more choice for companies in regulated industries to store their data locally and meet important digital sovereignty requirements.

Following on the heels of its announcement last spring, Toronto is now home to the second Google Cloud region in Canada since opening Montréal in 2018. Toronto joins 27 existing Google Cloud regions connected through their high-performance network – signaling the continued growth and customer base in Canada.

What Google Cloud’s new Toronto region signals for the future of cloud in Canada:

  • The launch of Google’s Toronto region highlights the rapid growth of cloud-based technology and services as Canada’s businesses across all industries continue making big investments to accelerate their digital transformation.
  • The new Toronto Google Cloud region is building on growing demand from Canadian customers across every industry.
  • The Toronto region will make it easier and faster for Canadian companies to leverage Google Cloud’s on-demand network that’s faster, more reliable and less expensive than one they could build themselves – along with being the cleanest cloud in the industry.
  • It will also enable customers to meet local regulatory and compliance requirements and provide more disaster recovery options for customers, which is critical for financial institutions, public sector organizations, online retailers and other businesses operating in highly regulated industries.
