I live in Canada. We are generally aware of the rest of the world.

I respectfully submit that you are not even aware of the rest of Canada. There is an increasing tendency in Canada to use international formats rather than US ones. This is most apparent in telephone numbers. More phone numbers can be seen daily that use '.' to separate the number groups rather than '-'. There is also a small but growing trend to use a space rather than a comma to group digits in formatted numbers. That's not what you get when you select Canada in the region pop-up.

And the above is just for English-speaking Canada. In the province of Quebec, they generally use European formats: space for grouping and currency symbol after a number. Sometimes they use '.' for the decimal, and sometimes ','. There is no Canada-Quebec option in the region pop-up, so do you think maybe someone in Quebec might want to be able to do some customization?
