Canada still could have participated, despite their withdrawal from the BIE. The USA hasn't been a member since the early 1990's. Membership is really only considered should a non-member country want to bid on hosting an international exposition. The last expo in the USA was held in New Orleans in 1984, and we have not bid on hosting any since then. Canada's reason for not participating in Expo 2015 was purely economic, not because of their non-membership in the BIE. It would have been nice to have seen Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the Scandinavian countries (other than Netherlands) participate, as well as India and Saudi Arabia.

Last news reported that Israel, Spain and Kazakhstan have confirmed to leave their own pavilions on the Expo site. Same for Pavilion Zero, Italy Pavilion, Open air theatre, Lake Arena, Tree of Life, as well as the service centers. Brazil pavilion and Coca Cola pavilion could be relocated in other places of Milan.

That can be a good idea, but only if there are definite plans for the use of the pavilions. Expo '67 in Montreal used of most of its pavilions for almost 20 years, with the annual "Man and His World" fair, but the majority of pavilions left on the sites of Expo '92 in Seville, and Expo 2000 in Hannover, have been abandoned and left to decay.
