Canada has produced, what, 90% of TV sci-fi over the last 20 years?
Sure, if you count American shows produced in Canada for tax breaks, like The X-Files.

Stargate was produced in Canada (for a U.S. company).
That's an example of what I mean (though for the most part it wouldn't count as "good" TV.)
Stargate was paid for by MGM, but the entire production was Canadian. A better example of what you mean would be, as you said, The X-Files, or Battlestar Galactica - they filmed in Canadia but the writers and producers were still American.
