I saw this bird at Matchdash Bay, Ontario and am not sure if it is, never seen a leucistic bird before.

I don't see anything to indicate leucism, just looks like it's in high molt.

O.K, thanks, don't know anything about leucistic birds... just thought it might be one because of the bright brown colour.

I agree - the lighter color on the underside of the wings is just the light hitting it.

Juvenile crows and ravens often look quite brown, which suggests this guys in his first pre-basic molt. Check out this shot of a juvenile Common Raven:
