    When you get that message "Before I can help you..." there is a Settings option at the bottom. Go to Settings > Time & Language > Speech and you'll see the same settings. I had to change "Choose the language you speak with your device" to English (Canada) to get Cortana to work. Until I installed English Canada language pack and Speech, the only option in the drop down menu was English (United States). I can't find that settings option in Cortana now though?

    EDIT: I guess, technically, its not a Cortana setting? I got there, originally, from the settings button in Cortana. That button is MIA now though?
    That makes no difference.
    I have changed Region to Canada > Language to Englisg (Canada) > set it as default > Restart.
    I have the "Cortana settings " at the bottom > click it and it sends me to Speech > click it, no option for English (Canada)

    When I went to Settings > Region & language > Add a language and selected English Canada two things were installed. The language pack and a Speech pack. There were two install progress bars. Now I have English (United States) and English (Canada) as options.

    Not in my computer.

    It's no big deal. I rarely use Cortana anyway.

    I'm guessing you installed the language pack but not the speech part. It was a separate clickable item for me when I added English Canada. I have mixed feelings about Cortana.

    Install speech.
    Maybe I forgot.
    Let's see.

    You might have to uninstall the language pack and reinstall to get the extra option?

    I did forget installing speech.

    Cortana has arrived in Canada.

    Thank you.

    Sorry to bump this but how do you get Cortana to show UK news instead of US? It's showing like CBS News and USA today as news headlines

    What is your Region set to? Settings > Time & language > Region & language. If it's set to United States, change it to UK.
