The general US accent (called Midland) and the Canadian accent have similarities. There are some differences such the elongation of words like "about" which Canadians might say, a-boot. "out" may sound like "oot". Some Canadians have a tendency to end a question with, "eh?" (pronounced: long "A") as in "is that correct?" (ex: the two of them took a long time to arrive, eh?) They also share a tendency with the Brits and the Aussies. They don't go to "the hospital, they go to "hospital" where the article word (a, an, the) is dropped before the noun. " (ex: She went to university). Canadians from the Maritime provinces in the east sometimes sound almost Irish, but that isn't true of most Canadians.

US and Canadian accents are about the same. You can pick up the 'boot' in a Canadian, but I don't recognize much else.

I like it as it more of neutral accent not one of those weird accent where you feel the need of subtitles in real life.

Jim Carrey is from Canada, and he's really odd. So I suppose all Canadians are like him.
