I can only give you a guess. I'm from Canada as well so I'm sure things are different.
I would say that if you are replacing the frame and want to do things legally that you would have to get re-registered as a salvaged title. I don't think it would have any impact on your financing as really all they care about is getting the money.
It may however affect your warranty if you have one, increase your insurance rates, and drop the resale value.
I can't tell you what to do, but I wouldn't bother with any of it. I'd change the frame and keep everything the way it was. Is the serial number even stamped into the frame on our machines? I thought it was just a sticker. If it is you could just swap stickers, even though that's not really legal either.
This information may not be correct. I am mainly going off of how it works if you total a automobile in my province. I would assume an atv would be the same but you never know.
