Google Docs is one example of a collaboration app available in Canvas
By default all courses have been assigned Google Docs
If the app is missing from a course it's because someone removed it, and there's away to restore it:
- Course > Settings > Navigation and then you can click and drag the Collaborations to be viewable for students
If the above step does not resolve the issue, escalate the request. A Canvas admin will need to toggle the setting
- Settings > Feature Options called “External Collaboration Tool” toggle it to OFF
