Microsoft this week announced that it will be expanding its footprint in Canada with multiple new data centers with an investment of US$500 million to expand its cloud computing and AI infrastructure in Quebec over the next two years. The company notes that this investment will increase its local cloud infrastructure footprint in Canada by 750%.

Chris Barry, president of Microsoft Canada said, “Today’s announcement builds on the extensive investments Microsoft has made in Quebec and is just the latest example of our deep commitment to this province. These investments will not only provide Quebec’s private and public sector organizations with more capacity and added resiliency to transform operations but will also enable a trusted and secure foundation to scale solutions faster to market and compete globally, securing Quebec’s future in the digital economy.”

L’Ancienne-Lorette, Donnacona, and Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures are all west of Quebec City, while Lévis is located south of Quebec City across the St. Lawrence River and all three cities have welcomed this investment by Microsoft.
