I live in Canada, and I was wanting a Skype phone number, but it seems Canada is not a country in which one can have this feature, is that so?

This looked like my solution, but you tell us 'not in Canada!' I live in a remote area in BC and use Skype phone for all my calls as the only option is a Pay and Talk cell phone. A Skype number would be great, but my Canadian friends will not want to call a US. number to meet  me in town!  Why not Canada? Will that ever happen?

I agree. I can't believe Skype is not selling Canadian phone numbers. I mean, they sell numbers from third world countries but not numbers from Canada?

Think CRTC, and cel phone monopolies. Likely not Skype's fault.

Correct, Mike. We can't provide the service unless/until the CRTC issue the required licenses.

I recommend that you always run the latest Skype version: Windows & Mac
