Per Wikipedia:
Canadian spelling of the English language combines British and ... retain British spellings (colour, honour and centre)
But BOTH are widely accepted in Canada.

There is a difference between the two. An information centre is a "center" that is designed specifically for storing, processing, information according to express needs of users.

So, as Paul has said you may find in Canada:
a. An information center
or
b. An information centre (with there being a distinct difference between the two)

When dealing with languages in Canada, you're not just talking about English but French as well. The word "center" as used and spelled in American English is "centre" in French and also "centre" in British English. As far as I know, I don't believe there is any difference in the definition among the three.
