British North America refers to the former territories of the British Empire in North America, not including the Caribbean and Bermuda. The term was first used informally in 1783, but it was uncommon before the Report on the Affairs of British North America (1839), called the Durham Report. These territories today form modern-day Canada and the Pacific Northwest of the United States.

Canadian Americans are American citizens whose ancestry is wholly or partly Canadian

Canadian Americans are American citizens whose ancestry is wholly or partly Canadian. The term is particularly apt when applied or self-applied to people with strong ties to Canada, such as those who have lived a significant portion of their lives or were educated in Canada, and then relocated to the United States. To others, especially for those living in New England or the Midwest, a Canadian American is one whose ancestors came from Canada.

Canada was still culturally British North America until the early 1960s, it took time to shake off that remaining identity marker

Canada was still culturally British North America until the early 1960s, it took time to shake off that remaining identity marker. I'd say English used in Canada is an interesting mash up of American phonological roots, a small dose of home grown Canadianisms (like toque, pablum, runners, 26er, skookum, ginch, keener, eavestroughs, washroom) with just a handful of Britishisms lingering still for good measure. Those are - to my ear, at least - Americanisms. Admittedly, there’s no one standard Australian English term (I grew up using the term togs, but cossie, swimmers and bathers are all familiar)

But Canada’s English isn’t British or American, writes James Harbeck

But Canada’s English isn’t British or American, writes James Harbeck. If so, what is it? The standard stereotype among Americans is that Canadians are like Americans, except they say ‘eh’ a lot and pronounce ‘out and about’ as ‘oot and aboot’. Many Canadians, on the other hand, will tell you that Canadian English is more like British English, and as proof will hold aloft the spellings colour and centre and the name zed for the letter Z. Canadian does exist as a separate variety of English, with subtly distinctive features of pronunciation and vocabulary.
