Try ObjectfarmSpell; 
which is based on ispell. It integrates seamlessly into apple's spelling 

Version 0.92 comes with British and American English dictionaries and 
allows to install own dictionaries (don't know if they have Canadian, 
though).  This version of ObjectFarmSpell does filter out LaTex 
commands, but since this feature is built into ispell, it is just a 
question of getting it activated.  I have written to one of the 
ObjectFarmSpell developers and he promised to look into this.  Maybe a 
few more e-mails requesting this feature will help...
