I think that copyright does not depend on the publisher of an edition, but on the where it was first published.

IF the rule of the short term applies, then it would only apply to works first published in Canada.

Any other interpretation would be silly. Otherwise one could find a country with (say) a one month copyright law, publish there, and then declare the work copyright free everywhere after a month.
