The Standard Model is the most comprehensive present day precision theory of particle interactions. Nonetheless, many key questions in subatomic physics and cosmology remain unanswered. The recent discovery of a Higgs-like particle at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has raised new questions. The International electron-positron Linear Collider (ILC) is being planned as the next high-energy world facility for particle physics. Precision experiments at the ILC will be essential in unambiguously interpreting LHC physics discoveries. ILC physics demands much better performance than previous or current collider detectors have achieved. The project status, in the context of Japan as a potential ILC host, will be summarized. The collider and detector challenges will be described with focus on specific tracking, calorimetry and accelerator ILC R&D activities in Canada.
