I go to ibus preferences in Lubuntu and can add French (Canada), but it's not the Canadian Multilingual layout. I tried installing m17 ibus packages and it adds a bunch of languages but not more French options (other than the French azerty m17 option). I didn't have this problem in ubuntu, just Lubuntu. Please help! Thanks in advance.

You can use setxkbmap to change your keyboard layout settings. Just open a terminal window and type:

setxkbmap ca multix

This will get you a Canadian Multilingual Standard keyboard layout. You can also create a desktop launcher with your keyboard layouts. Create a file named multix.desktop in $HOME\Desktop and open it with a text editor. Add the following lines:

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Version=1.0
Type=Application
Terminal=false
Exec=/usr/bin/setxkbmap ca multix
Name=Keyboard Layout
StartupNotify=false
Name[fr_CA]=multix

If you prefer to use the old Canadian French keyboard layout you can use setxkbmap ca and to get back to the US layout use setxkbmap us.

Install package ibus-xkbd and in your normal keyboard setup (not ibus) choose canadian multilingual, then in choose xkbd as a ibus input method and it will be canadian multilingual.
