Canada is a country located in northern America. It shares two borders with the United States : one with the Main Land to the south and one with the Alaska (an american state) to the northwest.

Grand Theft Auto games in Canada arrive typically around the same day as copies released to the United States.

Canada is currently home to one Rockstar studio, Rockstar Toronto. They helped make the PC version of GTA IV & EFLC. There once was a Rockstar studio in Vancouver, but it merged with Toronto in 2012. Rockstar Vancouver was known for games such as Bully & the Max Payne series.

Notably, Trevor says "Eh" a lot, which is a common stereotype of Canadian accents.
