I too am connecting/logging in with the Nissan USA site.
If there are Nissan dealers in BC who will do the upgrade for $199 CA, I would say jump at the opportunity very quickly before someone higher up notices the loss on the exchange rates or whatever. Maybe nearby US owners will even start coming north to get their 3G upgrades done and save a few bucks on the process.
Anecdotally, Leaf support and marketing seems pretty weak in the Winnipeg area. Of three dealers I have dealt with, the first guys shrugged and said "can't do anything for a US-spec Leaf, no manuals, no parts, no nothing". The second said they simply do not work on Leafs, period. The third had knowledgeable techs who were able to get the work I requested done.
However, while waiting in #3's service area, I wandered into their showroom to see what they would say about a shiny new Leaf (just for info purposes, I'm not really shopping). Approached by an eager young sales guy, I asked to see a 2017 Leaf brochure as none were visible in the big racks of other Nissan brochures. (There was no Leaf among the dozen or so other Nissan cars on the showroom floor, but I wasn't expecting one.) Sales guy looks surprised by my question, heads to the back office to see his boss, and returns to say "nothing at all on hand, go check the Nissan website". OK, I understand they have to respond to the market that's out there but this was a big dealership, shiny new building on the auto dealers strip on an important city route, lots of new Nissans in stock, crowded showroom, etc. and yet they could not even show me a Leaf brochure as a potential upgrade customer. Not surprised or shocked or anything, just sayin!
