Both Germany and Canada are reasonably the same as they are in our timeline albeit more liberal. Germany was not hit as hard as the other European nations, in fact, they stayed stable due to heavy American involvement. They did not leave NATO and the US never lowered its Cold War presence, meaning they weren't as susceptible to the attacks that their neighbors were. Germany has taken in a lot of Arab, Turkish, Bosnian, Croatian, Albanian, Czech, Polish refugees. The SPD has been in power for over a decade and has a coalition with the CDU/CSU. While France and Italy turned closer towards Russia, Germany helped the Baltic nations plus Finland join NATO.
Canada is led by Trudeau much like our timeline. They never saw a small conservative rise due to 9/11 like in our timeline and instead saw the rising conservatism in the US as something to counteract. Canada has become more progressively liberal, allowing gay marriage and marijuana legalization earlier on. They've taken in a lot of refugees as well, although most from Europe like French, Italian, Polish, Spanish, and Czech. There's never been an institutional victimization of Muslims in the US and Canada due to 9/11 not happening. This isn't saying anti-Muslim sentiment doesn't exist, it just means no one in government feels they owe them something for perceived policies. Canada is still strongly in NATO and has advocated for pressuring Russia.
