Actually, not so Gerry.

Perhaps the authorities might not get bent out of shape if you used the standard international order, but the letter of the law is clear in both countries. For reciprocal operation between Canada and the US the portable identifier comes after the call sign.

In the US, Part 97.119(g): "For an amateur service license granted by the Government of Canada, however, the indicator must be included after the call sign." (<http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/CFR-2009-title47-vol5/xml/CFR-2009-title47-vol5-sec97-119.xml>)

In Canada, RBR-4 section 9.2: "The operator of an amateur station licensed by the Government of the United States shall identify the station: (a) by transmitting the call sign assigned to the licensee’s station by the Federal Communications Commission;
(b) if transmitting:
(i) by radiotelephony, by adding the word "mobile" or “portable,” or
(ii) by radiotelegraphy, by adding an oblique character (“/”); and
(c) by adding the Canadian amateur call sign prefix set out in Column I of an item of Schedule IV for the geographical location of the station set out in Column II of that item." (<http://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/smt-gst.nsf/eng/sf01226.html#p9>)

VE1/W1VE or W1/VE1RM is the accepted international standard.   In the US
and Canada, no authority is going to get bent out of shape if you do it the
other way around.

Of course, I can't use either of these samples, because I'm licensed in
each country.
