Azure / SQL Server / This location is not available for subscription

During deployment of Azure SQL Server in Canada East location (new Azure Subscription) I got the following error:

Using Azure Portal


Using Powershell


At the same time if I list all available azure location for the current subscription I can see that Canada East is there


The reason is that Canada East region is not activated for my new Azure Subscription.

To resolve this issue just contact the Azure support to have this enabled for you. You can do this for free using support page on your Azure Portal.


Open a new support request


Describe your issue best as you can.


The Initial Response Time varies with both the support plan and the Business Impact of the request (also known as Severity).

In my case was 8 business hour for Severity C (Support Plans)
