I'm from Canada, and I can tell you that we didn't gain our independence until 1867. That means that in 1812, Canada and England were essentially the same thing. The British army was the one occupying and defending the Canadas at that point so Canada can't take a lot of credit for it.

actually there had already been a large "Canadien" national movement in Quebec and later the rest of Canada. Most of Canada identified itself separate from Britain but unlike america didnt really care of gaining independence due to the fact of economic trade, defenses etc... Due to Britain's other conflicts they couldn't afford to fully supply enough troops to defend all of Canada, that is why most of Canada's defenses were made up of militia forces with a with a mixture of British, French and Canadian leaders.
