Only one way to know for sure.......... Have it tested. I've seen it show up in regular gypsum wallboard and drywall compound. ....... and Canada has plenty of asbestos.

My bets are a drywall from Quebec that is fire proof probably has asbestos in it. The Canadian and Quebec governments are still pushing that crap all over the planet. There is actually a looming disaster in India with all the asbestos they use and the lack of protection they wear. They make a lot of products with it including thin cementitious asbestos roof tiles
