Hello Audwilly,

For an online dictionary, see the following page:

British, Canadian and American Vocabulary (by Karen Bond)

And for a book, see:

The Canadian Oxford Dictionary - at
"Oxford has another winner on its hands with its latest entry in the
dictionary marketplace. The new Canadian Oxford Dictionary (COD) is an
instant classic. This is a well-researched, comprehensive study of
Canadian English incorporating words and terminology from Canada's
diverse ethnic cultures and its every region."

Hope it helps!
