I have run across a couple of these bicycles. They are entry level, at best. Needless to say, they were made in the province of Quebec. My guess is that they are of Asian origin, shipped to Canada as parts and, like many other bicycles of its day, assembled on Canadian soil, thus bypassing some pretty hefty tariffs applied to imported bicycle back in those days.
If you are just getting into the interest (addiction) of finding and riding vintage road bicycles, perhaps you would benefit from a website that is designed with you in mind. MY "TEN SPEEDS" focuses on all levels of bicycles and attempts to help save time, effort and cash in their pursuit of one, or two, or...
Your steering stem, incidentally, is installed dangerously high. The stem should be inserted into the fork steering tube at least to the minimum depth which is usually marked on the stem. You can damage both the bike and the rider, with the stem set up the way it is.
Have fun with the bicycle. For what it is worth, I have lots of really high end bikes, however; one of my most memorable rides includes a day with this entry level Legnano that I found at the Dump...

I realize that this is an old thread but wanted to contribute.
I don't know much about the company but I do know they were around for a short period of time. I eould have to ask my parents to know where they bought theirs. The previous poster is right, they are quite level entry. Yours looks like a newer model. They are still fun to ride. I inherited one from my grand mother and rode it for years. I will soon be reunited with it. I know my mother still have hers. Not sure about my fathers one. And if I'm not mistaken my 86 years old grand father still ride his.
My understanding is that the brand was around in the 70's.
