I recently installed Elementary OS on my computer and for some reason Canadian English is not on the list of available keyboard layouts, which is weird since I can see Nigerian, Ghanaian, and Cameroonian English there. There's Canadian French, but no Canadian English. I'm currently using British English as it's closer than American English in spelling, but it's still not perfect. Any advice?
