Why use a Top Level Domain

I am trying to understand the use of Top Level Domains. Do they help from a SEO perspective? Lets say I have a US site and a Canada site. For US, I create www.foo.com and for Canada I create www.foo.ca. Does this provide better functionality, or is it better practice, than www.foo.com/us/ and www.foo.com/ca/?

Thanks for any insight given...

To start, probably the .com domain that you want to register maybe is not available, it's beeing used by others. The .ca is more likely to be available.

Next I would recommend that you read this article. It will answer most of your questions:
