Default Clinical Electives

Hi guys! I am a 4th yr international med. student..

I am planning to take my clinical electives in canada because I have a relative living there which means I can cost-cut a little. (I am trying to get an LOR)

BUT, I want to take USMLE because from what I've read in different forums IMG in US have higher successful residency match than in Canada....

If ever I got accepted in the electives I am taking in Canada, do you think my LOR bear weight?? Or should I apply in US??
