Why do Canadians subscribers get few product updates than their US counterparts?

Have any Canadian users looked at https://www.quicken.com/support/quicken-windows-release-notes recently? The last update for Canadian subscribers was October 2020.

Here's the list of updates for US subscribers since October 2020:

    Because they like the Canadian users better.   ;)

    Quicken Windows US has gotten a lot of updates lately, but not all of them have been "good", and in fact we have updates to fix updates to fix updates.

    When they update the Canadian version they roll all of the changes up to that point into the Canadian version, as such there are far fewer than what the US gets.  It is a plus/minus kind of situation.  Given the length of time, I do think that the Canadian version should get an update, but that of course is just my opinion.

    The NUMBER of updates is immaterial.  It's the CONTENT of those updates that matter.
    When a Q Can update is issued, it contains ALL of the Q US content to that point ... which might have been 2 or 3 US updates.
    But, I do agree that no Q Can update since October 2020 is surprising.

    I will add that some US updates are not effectives in Canada because both systems are not ruled with the same laws or bank regulations.

    Frankly I don't buy that any more.  That use to be the line that Intuit would give when people asked why there wasn't support for both US and Canadian financial institutions in each of the products (Quicken Windows US/Canadian).  Well Quicken Mac proves that wrong.  They have support for both US and Canadian financial institutions.

    Now there are some services that are clearly not supported in the Canadian version like Quicken Bill Pay (count yourself luck if you have never tried make that service work!) and as such not all the changes that the US version gets applies to the Canadian version.  But at this point I think it more has to do with what they choose to support because of how much it costs vs how much they think they will make.
