Just noticed on my 2009 that it has no bumper pads as the US cars have had since MY07... Can others confirm that their Canadian cars have no rear bumper?

What gives? We pay more in Canada to get less? For street driving, these 5 mph bumpers are indispensable.

In the first instance it is 2.5mph, not 5, and secondly it is more of a work around of the legislation wording than functional engineering - I wouldn't worry that you don't have a couple of large lumps of black rubber hanging off the car! :)
