Go into the menu under Tools, then click Options at the bottom resulting in a dialog appearing. Open the 'Language Settings' category and click on the 'Language' entry underneath it. Set 'English (Canada)' in the drop down list entitled 'Local setting:' and 'Western:'.

You can install the dictionary via the terminal.

$ sudo apt-get install hunspell-en-ca

For the thesaurus, I only found Australian and American packages.

$ apt-cache search mythes-en-*
mythes-en-au - Australian English Thesaurus for OpenOffice.org
mythes-en-us - English Thesaurus for LibreOffice
