I recommend that you go to eBay and look up the Coins category, and try to find some more Canadian cents being auctioned there. I have seen some recently, and you may possibly be able to get one or two dollars for it. They are not highly unusual, and they are not highly collectible. They are on a par with our American copper pennies.
Here is a bit more info on your coin:
OBV: Queen Victoria Crowned Head Left
REV: Maple Wreath Encircles Value And Date
Composition: 95.5% Copper, 3% Tin, 1.5% Zinc
Weight (g): 5.40
Diameter (mm): 25.50
Mintage: 1,000,000 or with "H" Mintmark 2,600,000
The "H" Mint Mark is the more common coin usually sold for $3-$5 in VG-VF condition.
The more uncommon of the two can go for $9-$20 in VG-VF condition.
In circulated condition it's worth about 50 cents.
