The Americans kept their six-year winning streak against Canada alive, but they had to come back from a 12-10 halftime deficit at Vancouver's BC Place Stadium to do it.
Cam Dolan and Dylan Fawsitt also scored tries for the Americans.
Canada scored tries through Gord McRorie and Peter Nelson and enjoyed the possession advantage with five minutes to go, but the American defence warded off their attacks.
Canadian prop Hubert Buydens needed stitches to repair a large cut on his forehead. He returned to the field, but was subbed again, with blood streaming down his face.
The Eagles' World Cup tournament kicks off against England in Kobe, Japan on 26 September.
Canada open against Italy on the same day in Fukuoka.
They still lead the all-time statistics against the US with 38 wins, 23 losses and two draws.
