Tidal HIFI is now sounding great in Canada
If you have the data plan to handle it, http://tidelhifi.com has streaming FLAC files at 1411 kbps - Lossless which is the equivalent to an audio CD at 16 bit/44.1 khz. They do provide three levels of streaming however. Standard Quality, High Quality and HIFI. These stream as follows Standard quality: 96 kbps (AAC +) High quality: 320 kbps (AAC) HiFi: Flac 1411 kbps - Lossless (16/44.1 khz) I listen to standard quality when I am out and about on my cell phone. When I am in WIFI either on the phone or one of my other computers I listen using HIFI. The cost is $19.99/month CAD which is about double everyone else on the streaming game. For me it is worth the expense. You will have to decide that for yourself. There is a free 7 day trial.
