Sounds like your physical keyboard does not match the keyboard layout the system thinks you're using.
If you're on Ubuntu 14.04, you can go to System Settings > Text Entry and select a different keyboard layout. The '+'
button lets you add another choice from a list and the little icon of a keyboard will display a picture of what it
thinks the keyboard looks like.
My guess is wither you have a Canadian Multilingual physical keyboard and the system is using an English (US) or English
(Canada) mapping, or vice-versa.
Setting the proper keyboard mapping will make your life a lot easier.
Of course, I could be wrong (I'm just guessing after all).
