Bur oak is just about the only oak in Manitoba, apparently. Its leaves are similar to white oak.

If you want to season your wood quicker, you can put a single layer on some concrete and it will season much quicker (in the summer).  I got a few hickory logs from my brother in law on the 4th of July weekend and they are already seasoned just because the concrete gets so hot ( I guess).  I cut them into small chunks for my MES 40 this past weekend and I have 6 plastic grocery bags full that are good to go.

Oak and hickory mix does a nice smoke.

That's the combination I've used for my last two smokes.  I do like the results.  Now it looks like I've got to try some kind of maple combination as well.
