    Yes it would. It's not a problem. I had a white Japanese DS Lite I used in the states until I lost it. I use my American black DS Lite here in Japan now.

    No problem.

    Your R4 will work in any DS, and you can charge a DS with a charger from any country.
    I think Canada uses 110V, and I know Japan does, so you will just have to get an adapter if you want to use the original charger.
    Edit: All DS' run on the same voltage, just that of the chargers is different.

    so i can buy a japanese or a DS outside of canada and charge it in canada right?even though its 220V...right?
    ok so that means that i can charge the DS is the charger is 110V and if its not i need an adapter right?
