In a way, both sides won. The US declared the war first (don't remember being taught that as a kid), but they didn't succeed in invading Canada. The British/Canadian forces responded by making some inroads into US territory, burning Washington, D. C., and so on, but they were eventually driven out.
Canada won by preventing its annexation by the US. The US won by preventing any expansion of British territory out of the conflict it initiated.

It's funny how far off any form of EU style political or economic union between the US and Canada is now. Canadians, for the most part think, compared to the US and UK at least, that their country has its **** together, and wouldn't want Canada dragged down by US politics. Americans occasionally remember that Canada exists.
