    I'd prefer "to" rather than "in" or "visited" instead of "have you been" or "ever been", but, with those exceptions, either would work.

    Neither. Maybe, "Have you had the opportunity to visit Canada?" 

    Personally, I'd rather not hear a question that the answer is "yes" or "no." Open ended questions are far better. "What parts of Canada would you like to visit?" (If they've already seen some of it, they'll say so...)

    WHICH sentence sounds better ---

    Neither.  It should be "to" Canada.

    Have you been..? /Have you ever been..? have almost the same meaning. The word "ever" means roughly "at some point in your life."

    The main problem I have with these sentences is "in." It is better to say: Have you (ever) been too...?

    'Have you ever been to Canada?' is natural for British speakers of English.

    Definitely 'been to', not 'been in', however you construct the rest of the sentence.

  • Neither one works and what's Canada got to do with any of it?

    Sounds kind of....DRY to me....
