Bug description:
  In Canada, many keyboards are bilingual and have a slightly different
  layout from US keyboards. They have an additional backslash key next
  to the left shift key.

  In Text Entry, when I select English (Canada) as the input source, the
  layout is wrong. Instead of a backslash, the layout shows a less-than
  symbol, and that is what input when I press the key.

  Attached a screenshot of the incorrect layout.
