There are how many people in Canada compared to the US? You live in a small country. Then divide those few people by how many car companies? Subaru is a niche player everywhere, so that means they can't make the same revenue in Canada as the US since they won't sell as many cars. Then add in the cost to ship cars to Canada, to pay for Canadian safety rules (5mph bumper, etc), maintain a dealership network, warranty cars, etc. Oh, and yes, your currency is still worth less than ours. Which means when you compare it to the strong Yen, they lose even more money.
