We used our 3G (cell network) Ipad in most places in Maine in June. It didn't work in some places, but more than I expected. If there was a town of any size, it usually worked. We pay $20/mo for the minimum plan with Verizon and don't come even close to using the alloted bandwidth. We use it alot. If the 3G plans will work in Canada as well, you would have a real winner. Add the inexpensive apps for charting, anchor alarms, etc. and you would never go back.
I don't think a wifi reciever will help on the boat, as you need to be close enough to a wifi router to pick up the signal and they don't broadcast very far.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
