Apple now offering AppleCare for iPhone in Canada

Apple has begun offering its AppleCare Protection Plan for the iPhone in Canada. The plan extends Canadian iPhone users’ warranties to two years from the original purchase date of the phone, including technical support and hardware repair coverage — both parts and labor — for any iPhone 3G or 3GS, its battery, included accessories, and an iPhone Bluetooth Headset. Mac Rumors notes that the launch occurs just after the one-year cut off date for early Canadian adopters of the iPhone 3G, and says reader reports indicate that Apple Canada is not providing an extension for the affected customers. The AppleCare Protection Plan is available now from the Canadian Apple Store and sells for $79 CAD.

I was in the position you describe above having bought my phone from Rogers Communications on the Rollout day of July 14/08. Apple only offered the Apple Care for
iPhone 3G in Canada on July 30/09. I tried to buy it from the USA site before my 1 year warranty was up but they would not sell it to me being from Canada.

This morning I tried to buy the CDN Apple Care for iPhone 3g and was told that my phone was OUT OF WARRANTY! There were no exceptions for me period.
They refused to sell me the product.

There are probable millions of people that are in this position I told them and he said that they would be monitoring this closely.

Now, because I tried to buy the Apple Care from the USA site while I was in my Warranty Period it left a note on my file that the Apple Rep agreed to follow up on at my request.  Based on the fact that I did try to but the Apple Care for my Iphone with in the warranty period and could PROVE it they granted me the Apple Care.
