Operating Instructions, pages 11f). This remote may interchange with those of other Panasonic hard drive models but I did not check the parts lists of other models. The correct remote is essential
for full operation/control of the DMR-EH55.
Other Panasonic remotes beginning with the number EUR7659 (from standard DVD recorders/combo recorders from the 2006 and newer model years) may control many EH55 operations but may not access the TVGOS. Operating Instructions for the DMR-EH75 shows a EUR7659Y90 model remote. The EUR7659 series remote model numbers are found on the rear just below the battery cover release tab.

That price is ridiculous when compared against the price of the EH75V remote at $17.98. As the EH55 and EH75 are of the same generation, I can't imagine that the EH75V's remote would not work with the EH55, in fact, since the EH55 lacks the VHS deck, if anything, the EH75V's remote features should be a superset of the EH55's (i.e., IOW there may be some controls on the EH75V's remote that are not present on the EH55 but not vice versa). If faced with that dilemma, I personally would opt for the EH75V remote over the EH55's remote.

Unfortunately, as this is a usa website, I have no idea what you would have to do to order a replacement remote for shipment to Canada. You can try calling them direct to find out (Phone contact info is on the page linked above).
