The reciprocal warranty agreement with Subaru of America covers US vehicle owners who have purchased US vehicles and currently reside and/or are traveling, transferred, or vacationing in Canada. The intent of the reciprocal warranty agreement is to allow US visitors the benefit of emergency warranty repairs while in Canada.
As it is an uncommon practice and only meant to offer assistance to US citizens vacationing or in transit through Canada your dealer may encounter difficulties determining if a repair is warrantable which may in turn delay the repair process. This program was not designed to accommodate Canadian residents who have purchased a Subaru vehicle in the United States for the purpose of importing the car into Canada.
Should you decide to import a US vehicle into Canada you will need to contact the NRIV (National Registrar of Imported Vehicles) at 1-888-848-8240 or online at www.riv.ca for additional information regarding this process.
We trust this information is helpful.

So I read that as: Yes they will honor the warranty but don't really want people buying cars in the US and bringing them here.
