Then there is the London, Ontario-based progressive band "True Myth" that everyone (even Canadians) have forgotten about, even though their debut album was not bad.  However, they do have the honor of being the first ever album recorded digitally in Canada and the 3rd in the world (following Ry Cooder's "Bop til You Drop" and Stevie Wonder's "Journey Through the Secret Life of Plants").  They are in the Archives by the way.

Red Rider and Tom Cochrane's (the leader of Red Rider) solo work is all quite popular in Canada.  Cochrane had a pretty big hit by himself, more known in Canada than the US (even though I did know it before I moved to Canada) called "Life is a Highway"

That's a great song!! Forgot about Tom's solo efforts, I remember that video......That song is played a lot here in US.

Don't know about CTD's internal popularity, but Platimnum Blonde only had a local success (they started out as a The Police cover band) and Toronto's best-known moments was disputing Pat Benetar's You Better Run hit for authorship of the song. Interesting to see the links between them and Rose and Honeymoon Suite (the latter had a long career)

The video for their annoying song "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" was all over eMpTyVee in '93. That song was a big hit here in the States and in the UK & Oz. I guess it wasn't as big on their home turf.

I posted about Toronto's original version of "What About Love," which became a huge hit for Heart.

Underrated thrash band. Their first three albums are great. They're not that good after that...

The Guess Who? LOL Not sure what my list of mostly women has to do with it though. Wink
When you list all the qualities that you despise and you realize you're describing yourself.

From your list, I'd choose Sarah McLachlan, seeing as I have six of her albums on CD. Smile

For the completists:

Lesser known but in PA : the amazing Rick Miller, Nathan Mahl, Huis, Hamadryad, Dean Watson, Antoine Fafard, Ken Baird, Maneige, Machines Dream, Red Sand, FM and Monarch Trail. 

In the rock world, you forgot BTO, Streetheart, Gowan, Heart (half US), Max Webster, Prism,Trooper and Rough Trade. 

Electro/other:  Front Line Assembly, Skinny Puppy, Moev, Men Without Hats, Delerium, Richie Hawtin, Intermix, Martha and the Muffins, Spoons, Strange Advance , the Payolas and Gino Vannelli . 

Surely missing a few others....

I've only ever known one Canadian guy who (still) doesn't like Rush!

I thought a Canadian could be deported for admitting that! LOL
