Upcoming Canvas Changes

Upcoming Canvas Changes

Periodically functionality will be added, changed, or removed in Canvas. Announcements are made in Release Notes on an ongoing basis. Other changes may not be directly related to Canvas, such as browser updates, which are not associated with Canvas releases.

This document outlines the summary of all upcoming changes that may affect Canvas customers.

Change Definitions

  • Deprecated: The software element or feature has been replaced by newer functionality and should be avoided, as deprecation precedes its complete removal on the specified date. Additionally, support for the element or feature is no longer provided.
  • End of Life: The previously deprecated software element or feature is no longer available and will be completely removed.
  • Feature Announcement: A feature (or feature option) in Canvas is identified with an upcoming enforcement date, which is when the feature will be enabled in all Canvas accounts. For feature options, the enforcement date is when the feature will no longer be optional, and Canvas admins can use the announcement time period appropriately to roll out the feature to their institutions.
  • Enforced: A previously announced feature option or other feature change is required for use by all Canvas accounts.


For archived announcements, please see Upcoming Canvas Changes [Archive].

Deprecations/end of life announcements related to Canvas Platform Services (APIs, GraphQL, Canvas Data) are located in the Change Log.
