Welcome to Book Country! The site used to have a very hands-on moderator who would answer your questions directly but alas, due to budget issues (my opinion) this source seems to have fallen away. Author earnings are paid quarterly. For more detailed information, look at the top right for the "publish" drop down menu, and then select "Author Earnings Report."
And while we do not have a PRH staffer present on this site, I believe someone still monitors the emails sent through the "Contact Us" function, found under the "Learn" drop down menu. It wouldn't hurt to ask about the Canada-issue. I don't think it would be a problem, but I'm not a qualified source of information on this one.
As for publishing, BC is an eBook venue only. However, you can always use another service, i.e. Createspace or Lulu, to produce a hard copy book. This would involve separate ISBMs and such, but outside of traditional publishing, it is what we have.
Sending you my best for your writing -
