Without seeing the front and not knowing much about Canadian Bird of Prey, I am taking a wild guess. This could be a Gyrfalcon. =) Maybe someone who lives in Canada or a better birder than I, can verify this. Good Luck!

(Chinese) Fellow birder pitching in here...definitely a Gyr, the size and overall structure of this bird rules out pretty much everything, even Peregrine, which can be eliminated by the lack of a distinct teardrop pattern shape below the eye.
