Looks like a checkered fritillary.
I just checked google to see if they ranged that far north... seem like they do.

Wow, that is a Beautiful Fritillary, great shot! Thumbs up

If not the Checkered Fritillary, possibly the Great Spangled Frit:

If it was my area I would say a Great Spangled Fritillary (Speyeria cybele) (but we don't get the Checkered so can't comment on it..and all I'm getting in google is flower by that name and its not on eButterflies list of Canadian fritillaries so not in my area for sure.) :P
If we had no holes in our leaves we would have no butterflies!
