Good morning, William,

The simple answer to your question is "Yes, you can." You can sue Canadian companies with the same reasonable expectation that you would have here in the U.S. Canadian companies are subject to very similar laws and liabilities as U.S. companies. In addition, Canada is a modern country, not unlike the U.S., and Canadian companies will be held responsible for their actions both here and abroad.
In your situation, first take a look at the contract
or agreement that you signed with the Canadian company. Briefly scan it, and see if there is a "choice of venue" or "choice of jurisdiction
" clause. This provision provides where the Canadian company may be sued should any problems arise.
If there is no such provision, then (and here's a part that may please you), you can sue the Canadian company in your hometown, and they will be forced to travel to the U.S. to defend against the lawsuit. Most likely, the Canadian company will simply do a cost-benefit analysis, come to the conclusion that prolonged litigation is not in their economic best interest, and either fulfill its obligations, or write you a settlement
