Can you play Japanese games on Canadian ps2?

On the Nintendo DS you can play any game without region lock so that means you can play a japanese DS game on an american DS but on the DSi and on the 3DS there is a region lock which means you can only play games that compatible with your DSi/3DS region. NTSC (=american) DSi/3DS can only play NTSC games, PAL (=european) DSi/3DS can only play PAL games and NTSC-J (=japanese) DSi/3DS can only play NTSC-J games.
