Spotify Is Finally Coming to Canada

But before you get too excited, Spotify in Canada may take a little while. At the moment Spotify has only granted access to a select few that signed up through Spotify's Canada page or the Spotify app which is currently unavailable. 

According to Spotify:
While the Spotify app is now available in the iOS and Android stores we have not officially launched in Canada. Right now users can download the app and sign up for a waiting list on 
We know there is a lot of excitement and demand for Spotify in Canada and we want to reward those fans who have patiently waited for the launch, so we will begin sending out invitations to users who have signed up on the online waiting list shortly. Over the coming months we will be gradually inviting users on to the service in an attempt to systematically scale Spotify in the most manageable way possible. 
When Spotify launches in a specific country we always make sure that the experience is curated for local tastes and culture. That means great local content and local curation of the music discovery experience. Spotify in Canada needs to be much more than just the Canadian version of Spotify in the US. That is why we are taking our time to make sure that the service we launch in Canada is the best possible experience for music fans from B.C. to Nunavut to Newfoundland.
If you want to enter the queue for the pre-launch invite, you can sign up on Spotify's page or wait for the Spotify app to return to the App Store.

UPDATE: The Spotify app seems to be back and available for download.
