The Canada lynx is one of four species of lynx cat. This is the full list:
  1. Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis)
  2. Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx)
  3. Iberian lynx (Lynx pardinus)
  4. Bobcat (Lynx rufus)
They are all a member of the Genus "lynx". They are all medium sized wildcats.

The answer therefore to the question, "Is the lynx Canadian?" is that the question is badly formed. The question should be, "Is the lynx found in Canada?". To that question the answer is, "Yes, and in Spain and Portugal (Iberian lynx) other countries of Europe, Central Asia, Russia (Eurasian lynx) and the United States (bobcat).
