    Home Page:
    Domain can be ca, com,net,org or other TLDs.
    The contents, backlinks and getting local traffic is the most important thing to do.

    It's not about just domain
    I think totally backlinks, you need canadian backlinks

    go with the .ca or .com ( .com does also extremely well in Canada )

    If it's a long term and bigger project, I would suggest that you buy both, I personally always do.

    but you should also consider hosting the site on a Canadian server.

    and of course, you will need links from Canada ( not all but some)
