Stateside is canuckian argot for the United States. Generally used in casual conversation to refer to the states as a destination, most commonly for short trips:


"I'm heading stateside for the weekend, visiting family in Boston."
"This nice man is giving me $200 to take this duffel bag stateside!"
"The Leafs are stateside for a three game roadtrip."

I suppose it's canadian equivalent would be provinceside, but I don't think that will enter common usage anytime soon.
