Microsoft Canada Pricing Alert: Effective December 1, 2018

Cloud | Posted on November 16, 2018

Microsoft Canada to raise commercial online services / Cloud products (Office 365, Azure, Dynamics) on December 1st, 2018.

Microsoft is announcing Canadian dollar price list changes for commercial online services, effective December 1, 2018.

Microsoft periodically assesses the impact of its local pricing for software products and online services to ensure there is reasonable alignment across regions and this change is an outcome of this assessment. Starting December 1, 2018 Canadian dollar prices for online services will increase by 5% to realign close to global US dollar levels.

For business customers, these changes will not affect existing orders under volume licensing agreements for products that are subject to price protection (eg EA, ESA, SCE). However, prices for new product additions under such volume licensing agreements and purchases under new contracts will be as defined by the price list at the time of order.

What to do next:

Contact Softchoice or your Softchoice Account Manager and Microsoft Sales Specialist on what effect this pricing change will have.
