I missed the registration number of my flight PHL-YQB. It seems that BTS does not list USA-Canada flights and I didn't manage to find the number anywhere else either. The plane used is according to planespotters.net either a CRJ-200ER or LR. No big difference, I know, but I like my flight log as accurate as possible Thank you!

Well, nothing useful really It's just a list of flights you have taken during your life. Some people like to include all kinds of stuff, such as exact departure and arriving times. For me the only really important fact, besides airline of course, is the aircraft type flown. I want to have that as detailed as possible, meaning that a CRJ200, a CRJ200ER and a CRJ200LR, for example, are all different types for me and I want to know exactly which one I few.
I don't care about registration numbers after I've looked up the exact type of ac, but for many people they are extremely important. Besides keeping a flight log, you can also keep a list of all ac types you have flown, which is for me almost equally important as the flight log.
Sometimes when I ride a bus or a train, I think to myself "LOL, I wonder whether some nerds keep bus/train logs..". For some reason that feels so much more silly than keeping flight logs

That's an interesting point...I wonder the same thing too, now that you mention it. I assume that there as to be an equivalent of "avgeek" in the rest of the transportation world!
As for the original question you posed, I am sure that they record the registration of the US-Canada flight. The issue with BTS, however, is that it runs on a 2-3 month delay. So if this flight happened recently, you won't be able to look up the info until maybe February(?)
I could be wrong though, but I would think US originating flights would be there...
