Salut Marc :

The canadian postal guidelines say "... to ensure proper processing, the 
country name must be spelled correctly and in full."   It further says 
that the country name can be in English or French (with accents).

see : http://www.canadapost.ca/tools/pg/manual/PGaddress-e.asp#1383605

the names in English : 
in French : http://www.postescanada.ca/tools/pg/manual/PGintdest-f.asp

It does give the ISO country code along with the recipient country's 
postal regulations, but that is not part of the adresse.

Just in case you ever want to send something internationally ... :)
