    I live in canada but the country of my channel is the US because I know that is where the majority of my audience if from .

    But let's get technical , what exactly would happen if I change it to canada ? Harder to rank in US and easier in Canada or what ?

    It helps the YT artificial intelligence to choose what to show to home page visitors and suggested videos. The country is one more signal...so if you search for Canada X Y Z where XYZ are other terms, the Canada part will likely weigh in your favor if your country matches. It's probably a mid to low strength ranking signal.
