Bermuda in Canada?? I don't know the plant personally but isn't it a warm climate grass?

I can't say whether it's Bermuda or not. The blades taper more than I'm used to.

USDA says "a few hardy strains of Bermudagrass persist in areas with sub-zero winter temperatures (USDA plant hardiness zones 5 and 6)."

The Bermuda in my lawn -- whatever variety it is -- unfortunately survived our -2* F winter (6b instead of our supposed-to-be-7a) with no visible die-back. 8-(

It isn't Bermuda, and also not Eremochloa (Centipede Grass). Both are more southern species. See if Zoysia japonica is a match. The BONAP maps do list that for Canada.

A picture of the seed head would help a lot. Bermuda grass has star shaped seed heads.
