    Here is my suggestion, when put through the exchange rate it comes out to $1575 Canadian. If you can scrap up the extra money I'd say that you should get a Strix 1070 instead of the 1060 and 32 gigabytes of ram instead of 16 but this should power through almost anything that you throw at it. Good luck!

    Awful PSU and 4x4gb 2133mhz ram, both not good choices, especially for Ryzen which being that the BIOS bugs haven't all been worked out works better with 2 dimms, and ram speed has a HUGE impact. That system is crippled by the ram.

    Significantly better version of the same thing, however within the OP's budget, also including needed copy of Win 10 OS, and in Canadian:
