All the schools look at overall GPA but they do notice if you had a huge upwards trend. Depending on how low your GPA is, I would suggest a course based Masters program to flood your grades with better ones.

I think Canadian schools allow you to remove one year. However, if your first year is already difficult, it's not going to get easier.
