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.
The thing about it though is that the Harper Government really seems against the concept of Expo's in general. I honestly have huge doubts about the economics reasoning considering that Canada spent well over a billion dollars just for hosting the G8 and G12 summits back in 2012, most of it for security.

I imagine that with a pavillion it would cost at least $70 million bucks, plus I recall that you can share a pavilion with another nation at the Expos. Plus membership costs like $100,000 annually, really small potatoes.

I agree with you on the economic part, since the US always seems to find money for things deemed "important" by the government, but considers BIE membership to be a waste of money. Private funding from sponsors was used exclusively to construct the USA Pavilion at Expo 2015, and I imagine that Canada could have done something similar, as well as several other nations that didn't participate, such as Australia, New Zealand, etc. Canada's two international expos (1967 & 1986) were both very successful, and I still have many fond memories of Expo '86 in Vancouver.
