Did you check their website this morning? They are waiving change ticket fees for several east coast cities.
However, if you are on a non-stop YQB-MCO flight, I'm not sure why you are concerned. This shouldn't affect your flight unless the plane and/or crew are coming from an affected airport.

What to do:
Air Canada has revised its ticketing policy for customers booked on affected flights to facilitate changes to bookings. Those customers wishing to make alternate travel arrangements can do so without penalty, space permitting, using our online rebooking tool: check your alternate travel options currently available; re-book yourself and check in before arriving at the airport.
Prior to leaving for the airport, please check your Flight Status, or call Air Canada's automated flight information system at 1-888-422-7533.
Alternatively, you can contact Air Canada Reservations toll free in Canada and the U.S. at 888-247-2262; TTY: 1-800-361-8071 or Air Canada Reservations worldwide. Due to increased call centre volume, wait times may be longer than usual.

Air Canada is monitoring the situation closely and is working to get you on your way safely and as quickly as possible.
Thank you for your patience and understanding."
My flight originates from YFC to YUL and while it is a direct flight from there, the Air Canada representative said that air flight could be delayed or cancelled all up down the east coast of North America even if the above mentioned airports are part of your itinerary or not. I suppose that could possibly mean that the plane and crew that I'm expecting to fly with, may be storm stayed at another location.
