    Are you from the US? I don't think gift card application purchases work outside the US. It's very unfortunate...

    Apple probably didn't deliberately sit down and say, "You know, we freaking HATE Canadians - NO ITUNES GIFT CARD APP PURCHASES."

    It's probably another issue over which they have little or no control.

    Check and see if a Canadian debit card will work. It should. You could use a prepaid debit card without even having a bank account attached to it. You can get them in your local store even. Check it out

    No, I think you can't' use debit cards for itunes. I know you can't use the visa one.
