Is it possible to change location of a VPS? for example, I am using a VPS with location in Canada and now I want to change its location to USA. Can I ask that to my hosting provider?

I would say it depends on the host. I'd recommend contacting them or reviewing their terms of service.

You should definitely contact your hosting provider. Firstly, your provider would have to be using your wanted location at first place. Then would be the migration question, if the migration would have to be done manually by you, or the service provider would offer such paid/free service for migrating your VPS image.

Hello. by default your request will be rejected. Because jump from host to host not possible. But if you use cloud vps you can migrate it to another POP for example isp have few pops in eu or usa you can transfer it to new pop

Yes, it is possible if your provider allows that. It is recommended to choose the location closest to your targeted audience to avoid latency.
