Canadian American Records was founded in 1957 by Leonard Zimmer. The label based in both New York City and Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Late 1966, the label moved to Grand Forks, North Dakota.
The most popular artists for the label were the duo of Santo & Johnny and singer Linda Scott.
After the label went dormant in 1968, the president, Leonard Zimmer, turned the label over, in essence, to Joey Welz. (Welz had a minor hit on the label in 1964). 
 In 1998, Dr. Philip J. Schwartz (X-Bat Records) produced the CD compilation The Canadian American Story by special licensing with Joel Welz.
