Default Canadian foodie expression as per the Canadian Oxford

Double-double

USAians may think this refers to a majority in the Senate and the House
of Representatives, but it means in fact two sugars and two creams in
your coffee.

(from CBC Radio this morning)

From the page of the Canadian Oxford come other typically English

Canadian expressions:

We all use Canadian English every day: when we order a pizza "all-dressed", hope to get a "seat sale" to go south during "March break", or "book off" work to meet with a "CGA" to discuss "RRSPs".
[...]
Whether you call your favourite doughnut a jambuster, a bismarck, a Burlington bun, or the more prosaic jelly doughnut may depend on where you live in Canada, but they will all be found in The Canadian Oxford Dictionary.
