Hi. first, if I can point out, brown recluse are not found in Canada.
Your spider is a very harmless funnel weaver. Just a hunch is Eraigena genus, Giant house spider, hobo spider.
Possible a domestic house spider, Tegenaria domestica.
(something I would freely handle) I just barely can make out fangs here, not as big as you may think.
You may be mistaking the pedipalps for fangs, a common error.
