What is the difference between Mexican-American food and Mexican-Canadian food? [Moved from Canada board]

A friend and have been having this discussion regarding the way foods of particular ethnicities change when they pass into different countries. For example, Indian food in America is a poor shadow of Indian food in England (most definately due to England's imperialism).
My question then goes out to all of those people out there who have partaken of Mexican-American food and Mexican-Canadian food. Is there much of a difference? Is the Mexican food in Quebec different than Vancover? Or is Mexico far enough away, and Mexican immigration too low to make Mexican food in Canada anything more than a copy of it's US neighbor?

Thanks!
