I myself am from Montreal Quebec and fell in to the digital world with the recent (Nov/2016), purchase of a FR-8X. So we have a few things in common... both fans of accordions, Roland digital accordions and both in our mid-50's. We have another user here who did some very nice DIY improvements on his 7X, I am sure you will find that thread quick enough and if not, let me know and I will link you right to it.
BTW, I had a chance to visit your beautiful part of the country a couple of years ago and spent 3 months there for work reasons. Vancouver (though not super close), has some nice accordion clubs, I hear.
Anyways, WELCOME to the forum!
