I'm not going to comment on the possible price that the car might come with because in the UK the price repositioned itself on more than one occasion and this all came down to final standard equipment spec. One thing I do know is that in the UK at least the RS5 is remarkably close to the M3 when the M3 is specced to the same standard as the RS5. Whether the same could or would be true for Canada or Noth America I can't honestly say but I doubt things will be dramatically different than here.
Remember that the RS5 includes a lot of hi-tech equipment.
