Sadly, if the US goes down, Canada goes down too. We're so intertwined in so many things, that it'd be a domino effect. 81% of Canada's total exports go to the US, 20% of that over just 1 bridge, the Ambassador Bridge in Detroit. The goods that go over that one bridge is equal to all US exports to Japan. 67% of Canada's imports are from the US. Plus Canada's the largest supplier of oil to the US. We share electrical grids and many hydroelectric dams. Remember the 2003 Northeast Blackout? It took out Ottawa, Toronto, and Windsor as well.
