Tim here. According to my Debian box packages, the aspell package
should include a Canadian word-list. You can either specify it
with a one-off
$ aspell -d en_CA ...
or you can put it in your config:
$ echo lang en_CA >> ~/.aspell.conf
to make it the default. You can then check files like
$ aspell check mydocument.txt
If the TUI interface is a bit too cluttered for your taste, lying
about your terminal-type can help:
$ TERM=dumb aspell check mydocument.txt
There are a LOT of options to aspell, so you can lose hours reading
up on it and experimenting, but that should give you the basics.
