The SUV style Lada Niva while not common is certainly around in Canada but the pickup version is quite rare. I saw this orange truck years ago in a Walmart parking lot and then again outside of Calgary’s Lada destination – Ansel Motors. Its since been sold up to Edmonton, Alberta.
These pickups where built in Halifax Autoport in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada using standard Niva components as well as the Chevrolet truck tail lights and coach built rear section.
Another Niva truck has shown up in North Alberta for sale.

There is a few errors in the listing (those are BSA alloys that where optional and every pickup I’ve seen has had them) and its a 4spd or 5spd with low and high ranges but body wise it looks nice and solid.
As a bonus here is the only literature I’ve seen with it mentioned
