This construction is ubiquitous (UVicuitous?) around here.

Since my wife and I moved to Victoria we've noticed Candians from all
parts of the country using it.

Mothers ask kids, "Are you all done breakfast?"

Students daydream about "When I'm done university..."

We've found it a very salient Canadianism--though we never noticed it,
growing up in Washington State and making pretty frequent trips North of
the border.
