With that budget I would start with the best 2.0/2.1 and add the center and surrounds later when finances allow. In that open space multiple subs will most likely be necessary when you can afford it for the most even response.
Since you are in Canada you might consider a nice pair of book shelf speakers from PSB or Deftech and pair them with a Denon AVR such as the X2000.
