I Want To Redirect My .ca

Yes and Yes. At least where rankings are concerned.
If you make the change going the other way, after you're sure the .com name wasn't already used and burned by someone else, you should plan on struggling for several months. And you'll want to get as many of the existing links pointing to the new domain as you can. But even with that plan on months of time to climb back to your current position.
And if your main business right now is coming from Canada, this too may be adversely affected.

I thought that a 301 redirect would transfer the link weight, and that Google (at least for one SE) would see this as one site. if we were ranking for certain pages on certain terms would that not translate the same if we redirected to identical url (aside from the .com)? would not the link weight of the .ca remain the same if it is seen as the same site?
It is not our main business, our main business is the USA.

It would, the thing is, it just could take a little while before everything kicks in so it's all back to normal, as it was before.

Just to clarify....
So the main business to your .ca site is coming from the US?
If so, that might be a sort of okay thing to switch to the .com version of the domain. Assuming you can withstand a few months of volatility.
