Which countries are restricted from using Canvas?

Due to government regulations, Instructure prohibits the unauthorized use of its products and services in specific countries and regions.

Instructure complies with United States regulations related to embargoed countries and regions. As required by the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control, Instructure currently prohibits the unauthorized use of its products or services in:

  • Cuba
  • Iran
  • North Korea
  • Syria
  • The region of Crimea

The exportation, re-exportation, sale or supply, directly or indirectly, from the United States, or by a U.S. person wherever located, of any Instructure products, services, or technology (including technical data) to any of these countries or regions is strictly prohibited without the prior authorization by the U.S. government.

Due to the evolving nature and wide reach of U.S. sanction programs, customers and their users are urged to consult applicable U.S. export control laws and regulations for further information.
