Why Has Canva Stopped Working?

Canva is a popular and powerful graphic design tool that allows users to create their own designs, edit photos and create logos. It has been used by millions of people around the world for various purposes, including creating business cards, posters, magazines and logos.

However, recently Canva has stopped working for some users. This has been a major disappointment to many Canva users who rely on it for their work or personal projects. So what caused this sudden change?

The most likely cause of Canva not working is due to the fact that it is hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS). AWS experienced an outage in the US East-1 region on April 26th which affected many online services including Canva. This outage was caused by a problem with the underlying infrastructure which caused a disruption in service.

Canva’s engineers responded quickly to the issue and worked hard to restore service as soon as possible. However, some users are still experiencing issues with Canva’s services due to lingering problems caused by the AWS outage.

In addition to this issue, Canva also experienced an issue with its servers in Australia that caused delays in response times. This issue has since been resolved but may have contributed to further disruption in service for some users.


The combination of an AWS outage and server issues in Australia are likely what caused Canva to stop working for some users. While the issues have mostly been resolved, there may still be lingering problems that need to be addressed before all services are fully restored.
