Yes, the metric system (ISU) is the official measurement system in Canada. Odometers are in kilometers. You do get some grocery stores that sell things by the pound which I find mildly annoying.

in addition the odometers also show miles, but kilometers is the most prominent. I suspect Canada is the only country in the world to do so, thanks to stradling America which is stuck in the 1500s.
