Does Canada Produce Good TV Shows?

Yes!

"An American In Canada", and "The Red Green Show"!

Any others?

Canada has produced, what, 90% of TV sci-fi over the last 20 years?

Well I wouldn't go as far as to say 90%, but a fair chuck of Sci-Fi shows have been produced in Canada over the last few years.

But to answer the overall question, Cananda like any other country produces some shows that are good and some that are bad.

Degrassi: TNG!! Okay, so it's devolved into a marginally okay guilty pleasure by this point, but I used to really enjoy the show.

Sure, if you count American shows produced in Canada for tax breaks, like The X-Files.

That's an example of what I mean (though for the most part it wouldn't count as "good" TV.)

I haven't seen it but I actually went to highschool with one of the actresses in the movie, Polly Shannon. We were lab partners in Chemistry class a few times. I doubt she'd remember me though.
