Canada has a lot of things going for it — except when it comes to digital privacy and online freedom. The Canadian government actively tracks its citizens through mass online surveillance, and even shares that data with other countries.
Canada also regulates and censors online content. Platforms like Spotify and Netflix are forced to promote Canadian content above international content. Plus, Canada’s Online News Act means you can forget about accessing news posts on Facebook and Instagram.
Fortunately, you can break free from surveillance and censorship with PIA’s Canada VPN. It encrypts your connection so your ISP, government, and cybercriminals can't spy on your traffic. If you ever travel across the border, you can connect to a server back home and get a Canada IP address. That way, you can still catch a hockey game while on vacation.
A VPN can slow down your connection unless it’s optimized for speed. Connect to PIA VPN to steam, game, and torrent without so much as a stutter. Our 10-Gbps VPN servers are engineered to handle heavy loads, even at peak times. We’ll never limit your bandwidth or cap your data, so you’re free to use your VPN as much as you like.
Public Wi-Fi is great for catching a Leafs game on the go, but beware: cybercriminals can easily intercept your connection and steal your sensitive information. Use PIA VPN to wrap your online activity in uncrackable code. Our built-in Kill Switch prevents your data from leaking if your connection drops unexpectedly. Now you can take advantage of free Wi-Fi safely wherever you go.
Worried about who sees your browsing data when you use our Canada VPN? You can relax — our systems are created around a strict No Logs policy for the sole purpose of protecting your privacy. Our servers are RAM-only, so they're unable to store your traffic data. That means your search history is gone for good.
You opt for a little light shopping on your favorite sites, but a few days later, you notice fraudulent charges to your account. Cybercriminals have sneaky ways to steal your passwords and card details, especially on public Wi-Fi. You can secure your traffic with PIA’s powerful VPN encryption to add an extra layer of protection when shopping online.
Your internet use isn’t limited to just one device — your VPN shouldn’t be either. PIA supports all major devices and systems, allowing you seamless coverage as you move from one device to the next.
Download our VPN for PC to protect your sensitive work-related data. We also have VPNs for Chrome, Firefox and Opera, making it easier if you just want to protect your browser.
Next, download PIA VPN for iOS, or, if you’re an Android user, download our VPN apk to make sure your smartphone is also secured.
Finally, for all-round protection, configure the VPN for your home router to cover your smart TV and gaming systems. You can connect to unlimited devices to any one account, leaving no gaps for data leaks.
Get all the high-level features you need to protect your online privacy in Canada and beyond. PIA is the most privacy-focused VPN on the planet.

Yes, you can use a free VPN to get a Canadian IP address, if you’re willing to compromise on security and speed. Most free VPNs simply don’t have the commitment to protecting your privacy that PIA VPN does – and some may even sell your data on to third parties, making them less secure than browsing without one.
Free VPNs also typically can't deliver the speeds you’re used to. The result is lagging and stuttering when you’re trying to stream content.
PIA VPN solves both of these problems. We’re unrivaled when it comes to protecting your data, and our optimized network means you won’t be left hanging. Try us risk free with our 30-day money-back guarantee.
Distribution and licensing laws for Canadian video platforms can make it hard to use your favorite news, streaming, and social media services outside the country. Many streaming platforms are region-specific and only have the right to stream content within certain geographic locations. This means if users travel outside the licensing area, they lose access to some of the movies they would normally be able to watch.
The same restrictions can apply to local sports, news, and banking accounts while traveling outside Canada. Most local banks have security measures to detect suspicious activity, so if a user attempts to access their checking account from a different country or location, it could be locked.
The recently enacted Bill C-18, known as the Online News Act, requires tech companies to compensate Canadian media for hosting local news content. This has led to platforms like Meta outright blocking Canadian news. It follows Bill C-11, which pushes streaming services to prioritize and financially support Canadian media content. PIA conceals your location by rerouting your connection through a server in one of 90+ countries, so you can securely access Canadian news from anywhere.
A VPN provides Canadians with a local IP address anywhere in the world, for fast access to critical accounts. A VPN with fast servers and unlimited bandwidth, is also excellent for endlessly streaming their favorite Canadian cinema buffer-free.
To get the most out of your Canadian VPN, you’ll need one with local VPN servers and a proven track record for protecting your privacy. PIA VPN has servers in Vancouver, Ontario, Toronto, and Montreal, able to give you a Canadian IP address in minutes, so you can connect to your favorite local sites safely, from anywhere.
An IP address is a unique set of numbers identifying and locating any device on the internet. A Canadian IP address allows you to unblock websites for Canadian news and banking which may be restricted to local users only. To get a Canadian IP, connect to one of PIA VPN’s many servers in Canada.
Yes, VPNs are legal in Canada. There are no laws to stop you from hiding your IP address and encrypting your traffic, so you won’t get in trouble if you use PIA VPN. However, breaking the law while using a VPN is still illegal, and you can still be caught and held to account.
Prices vary but you typically pay more for a fast VPN with servers in Canada. At PIA, you get a full-featured VPN from just per month, and you can try our VPN at no risk thanks to our 30-day money-back guarantee.
Canada’s heavy surveillance makes it difficult to stay anonymous online. Local laws don’t stop companies from collecting your information. Wherever you leave your digital footprint — be that at Tim Hortons or Cineplex — you can be sure third parties are tracking it. This data can then be shared with advertisers, authorities, or even cybercrooks. Your ISP also has unrestricted access to your activity when you’re browsing at home. Even in incognito mode!
PIA VPN protects you from online surveillance. Our military-grade encryption renders your data completely unreadable to third parties.
Yes. PIA has 4 VPN server locations across Canada in Toronto, Ontario, Vancouver, and Montreal. All servers work with local websites, like Netflix, CBC, and Kijiji, so you can enjoy your favorite content without sacrificing your privacy.
Yes, you can. Use PIA VPN to hide your real IP address, and get a new one from one of our VPN servers. Simply connect to a server in Montreal, Toronto, Ontario, or Vancouver from anywhere in the world. Whether you want to hide your search history at home, or watch CBC while away on holiday, PIA has you covered with a Canadian IP address.
You can, but it doesn’t mean you should. Many gratis services sell your usage data to cover their running costs. Free VPNs are also often slow and unreliable, or they may limit your usage, which makes them useless for streaming Coroner and other Canadian shows. You’re likely to experience buffering or lagging, or even be cut off completely.
If you’re not sure, you can try PIA with our 30-day money-back guarantee and see if our VPN fits your needs. That way you’ll know exactly what you’re spending your money on before you fully commit.
Changing your IP address on its own isn’t enough to hide your online activities from your ISP. Your data still has to pass through your ISP's network, so you need VPN encryption to secure it. Our military-grade encryption scrambles your data using an unbreakable cipher, making it unreadable to your ISP, or any other third party, including the Five Eyes alliance.
Yes. You can get a Dedicated IP VPN from PIA’s servers in Vancouver, Montreal, and Toronto. Getting a unique IP can improve your experience on Canadian websites. You’ll encounter fewer CAPTCHAs and security blocks because dedicated IPs don’t trigger protection systems as often as shared IPs. This is particularly helpful on gaming servers with tighter security.
Your anonymity remains untouched with a dedicated IP address from PIA. We use an anonymous token-based mechanism when assigning your IP. This means that even we can’t trace your Dedicated IP to your real IP.
Bill C-18, also known as the Online News Act, is a Canadian legislative measure that came into effect in June 2023. This law tackles the country's news funding crisis by charging global corporations like Meta for hosting local news content. Consequently, Meta and other companies opted to block Canadian news to evade these charges.
Bill C-18 triggered intense debates both within and outside Canada regarding the extent of government control over digital information.
