Can I use two foreign Pokémon for the Masuda Method on Pokémon Y?

For example, will it still work if I breed a French Ditto with a Japanese Eevee (I'm from Canada)? I need to know this because I've been using those two Pokémon for the Masuda Method to get a shiny Eevee.

Yes it will

The Masuda method works by breeding 2 Pokemon from different regions.

The Masuda method involves breeding two Pokémon created in games of different countries.

You can use any foreign Pokemon for it to work. They can both be from a different country than yours as long as they aren't from the same one.

If both Pokémon are foreign to the cartridge but are both from the same country, then the Masuda method will not take effect.

The Masuda method involves breeding two Pokémon created in games of different countries. An Egg resulting from such a pairing will have a higher likelihood of being Shiny. The most common way to arrange such a pairing is to use one foreign Pokémon and one from the game in which the breeding occurs, although the method will work in any game provided at least one of the Pokémon in the pair is from a country different to the country of the game cartridge.

So, yes!
