Have you been to Canada?

If I say this sentence in the past, can I say "Did you go to Canada? " or "Had you been to Canada?

Have you been to Canada? This is most common.

Did you (ever) go to Canada? This is possible in a context where the questioner knew the person would likely go there.

Had you been to Canada? This is not correct.

If I say this sentence [STRIKE]in[/STRIKE] about the past..
