What is the normal voltage in Canada?
Which area got 120 and 240?

Canada uses 120 volts and 240 volts at 60 Hz as their nominal supply voltage to homes.
For the entire system, voltage available are:
The frequency of all supply voltages is 60 hertz.
6.1 Primary Supply Voltages
Contact the local supply authority for the requirements associated with service at primary voltages.
6.2 Secondary Supply Voltages
Nominal secondary supply voltages are:
a) 120/240 volt, single phase, three wire; or
b) 120/208 volt, three phase, four wire grounded wye; or
c) 347/600 volt, three phase, four wire grounded wye; or
d) where Utility Approval is granted, 347/600 volt, three phase, four wire high resistance grounded wye. Where this configuration is approved and conforms to CEC rules 6-412 and 10-1100 to 1108, the Customer shall provide the grounding resistor, all wiring, connectors, compartments, etc., associated with the high resistance ground installation.
6.3 Supply Voltage Operating Ranges
The normal and extreme operating ranges for secondary supply voltages at the point of delivery are as follows:
Nominal voltage - 120/240 Volts
Normal Range - 110/220 - 125/250
Extreme Range - 106/212 - 127/254
Nominal voltage - 120/208 Volts
Normal Range - 112/194 - 125/216
Extreme Range - 110/190 - 127/220
Nominal voltage - 347/600 Volts
Normal Range - 318/550 - 360/625
Extreme Range - 306/530 - 367/635
Improvement of voltage levels beyond the normal range but within the extreme range is done on a planned basis. Immediate corrective action shall be taken to correct voltage levels outside the extreme range.
Hope this helps,

120V and 240V for home.
600V for industry.
