Is the Belvedere the sister car to the Canadian made 1956 Dodge Mayfair?

Yes. The Belvedere was also produced in Canada.

Kind of a chicken/egg thing but I think that it is safe to say that the Mayfair is based on the Belvedere and not the other way around.

"The V8 engine came to Chrysler of Canada's low-priced models in 1955.[5] As before, the Mayfair was largely a Plymouth Belvedere, using that car's 115 in (2,900 mm) wheelbase and body with Dodge's front sheetmetal. The engines were imported from Detroit with various covers, manifolds, electrical pieces and rubber parts added in Windsor. Only the Mayfair offered a V8. And both Plymouth and Dodge offered PowerFlite 2-speed automatic with its new dash-mounted control lever. The Hy-Drive unit was eliminated.

Things changed in 1956 when Chrysler of Canada opened a new V8 engine plant. The Mayfair was now V8 only, while the lower-priced Dodge Crusader and Dodge Regent could be had with either the six or V8. Early in the model the 270 cu in (4,400 cc) V8 was installed while later the all new 277 cu in (4,540 cc)was introduced. A 4-door hardtop was added to the line and the Powerflite automatic was controlled by new dash-mounted pushbuttons"
