You followed this guide? https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=202174250

Define "I cant do anything with it".

A specific app won't work, the remote doesn't work, a specific command won't work, what?

My Alexa stuff:
Echo Show, Echo Spot, 4 Echo Dots, Fire TV, 2 Fire tablets,
Vobot Alarmclock, Logitech Harmony Hub, house full of Hue lights,
Domoticz server connecting e-thermostat, smartplugs etc.

I called Amazon and they said echo and Firestick do not work together in Canada. But it shows up in the Alexa app. But it doesnt say online or offline.

You may have to set it up as a US Amazon device so it will allow Alexa skills available in the US to work.  This is discussed in other threads in this forum.
