Do you hear your Canadian accent?
Many Canadians don't realize they speak any different than Americans (general american) but the Canadian accent is actually fairly pronounced. Words like "out" "about" come out sort of like oat and aboat because of "Canadian Raising". There are other giveaway words like "sorry" and "bagel" ect that expose the accent and a bit of a different intonation too. Do you notice?
I was oblivious to this at first but the more I started to listen to it the more I could hear it.
