Being from Canada [now in China] I can attest to there being so much more than the typical 'urban' locations of Canada. While I would suggest to anyone visiting Canada to make substantial time in one's schedule for Montreal, there are some outrageous destinations in Canada. The Arctic and Northern regions of Canada are like nothing you can visit. Speaking from experience, my family was pleasantly surprised when we took the chance of relocating above the Arctic Circle. The experience changed our lives. My only regret is not doing a better job of documenting [online] our experience. The one thing I did do was jot down all the interesting ways anyone can earn a living up there.
