On my Debian box, the "hunspell" package offers a 
"hunspell-en-ca" Canadian English dictionary.  You may have to 
launch it with

   LANG=en_CA pico somefile.txt

to set your locale properly.  According to the documentation on 
hunspell, it supports the fairly standard "ispell" interface.

Hope this helps,
