WJKK WJKF. I think it's normal when you're at that age to start to feel a pull to have a companion. Have you talked to your family about finding someone for you? It can certainly be lonely when you have moved away from everyone you knew to a new country, and depending on where you live in Canada it can be isolating. I think it is important to distinguish the feeling of wanting a companion with needing someone to fill the loneliness. Maybe you are experiencing both. No one else will probably ever be able to do the job of filling that gap. In my own experience, my loneliness gap was a spiritual gap and once I started to fill it with the love of God, there was less feeling of loneliness even though I actually have less people around me now than before. Other people cannot really fill that gap, and throwing the expectation on them to puts a lot of pressure on them to fill something that can only be filled on your own path. I'm trying to say don't expect someone else to fill that. At the same time, sangat can be helpful. If you don't have many friends, then spend time at the Gurdwara Sahib, to develop sangat that inspires you and helps you on your spiritual path.
