Can sizes

I'm really curious about this and somebody might know: why do beans come in 19-oz cans in Canada, and in (I gather) 15.5-oz cans in the US? I'm a calorie-counter, and this has always puzzled me as well as irritating me just a little bit when I've tried to use online programs to count. Or is it a different "ounce" or something like that?
