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)

    I shouldnt have to submit a ticket, they give us a free 30 day trial but we get a roadblock with location not available? are you kidding me?! dumbest shit ive ever seen, i have zero tolerance for lack of common sense.

    you want us to try your software and possibly become a long time member? then fix that stupid bullshit!!

    This also happens for existing paying customers so does seem pretty stupid.
