So yeah, I live in Quebec and I own the English Canadian Version. I have a friend who owns the French Canadian Version and he gave me a Ditto. If I breed that French Canadian Ditto with my English Canadian Pokémon, will the Masuda Method apply?

The Masuda Method is when you use Pokemon from different language games to produce an egg (for example, a japanese Ditto and an English Snivy). By using Pokemon from different language games, the Pokemon that hatches from the egg will have a 6/8192 (1/1366) chance of being a shiny Pokemon instead of the usual 1/8192 chance.
Do note that the Pokemon have to be from different language games, not different regions (American and English parents still give the normal 1/8192 odds). - Source

As long as the games are from two different languages it should work.

Yes, the Masuda Method will apply. They need to be different language games in order to work, not different country games.
