Create a VPN Gateway between your firewall and using AWS.  Once you get it setup (AWS has templates for each firewall) add a route for specific TCP traffic to be routed out the gateway to a specific destination.

Can you please describe the use case?
Maybe some experts here can make better suggestions if they know the reason for this requirement.

You would need to create a connection VPN or Direct connect from your Colo to  the Central Canada Region. The VPC you create in  Canada will need to have a peering to a VPC in Singapore. Then configure necessary routing and filtering.
