I have some mutual funds in Canada from BMO. I am a non-resident of Canada. I am U.S.A resident. I recevied capital gains dividends.
Do I need to pay capital gains tax in Canada? Or just pay U.S.A.? Thanks.

Likely not, unless the fund mostly holds Canadian real property (including real estate but also mining rights).
Under the Canada – United States Income Tax Convention, assuming the limitation on benefits provision has been satisfied, a United States resident’s gain from the disposition of property is only taxable in the United States unless the property disposed of was ... a share of a corporation resident in Canada if the value of the corporation’s shares is more than 50% derived from real property situated in Canada
If taxes were withheld, or if you do have to pay Canada since it's a property fund, you should look at filing Form 1116 with your US taxes to get a Foreign Tax Credit.
