Are these devices at all useful in Canada?

boxee box > roku

Perhaps, but $80 > $200 is also a valid equation.

I'd still need to get a good ISP with a lot of bandwidth right?

I'm actually on Bell, so just about equally screwed. I'm looking at indie ISPs but I'm waiting for the CRTC storm to settle so I better know what I'm getting myself into.

EDIT: Also, does the roku also play files off a computer such as AVI and MKV? Because that is the kind of functionality that would be the tits. I know Boxee has that.

No, Roku does not speak to your computer. I can see the appeal of that functionality.
