If your in the Canadian winters, you best have some serious $$ for insulation if your going to use propane.
I feel propane should only be used as a last resort due to the dangers. Electricity is best in small spaces like a bus if your in a place that has a electrical connection.
If your off grid, and no one else is close, a coal burning stove that also uses wood is hard to beat. Each ton of coal cost $50 and had the same BTU as 6 cords of birch fire wood. Last year I burned just under 2 tons ($90 worth) all winter in my bus shed. That was all winter, and my bus shed has no insulation on the floor, and holes that leak air.
