    you dont say how your geo targeting but it tends to match / target the user. So a user in Toronto would be matched with the Toronto geocoding. The Canadian one is more of a catch all so targeting other users but still in Canada.

    I maybe miss understanding the question though.

    Sorry, I really rushed the question.

    So, in AdWords, I've set geo targeting as the above locations. Despite specifying certain provinces, will AdWords still target all of Canada, since the country is also included in the list of locations?
