Which Model is it ?
Did it not come with a 5 year warranty ?

Backlights fault on LCD screen is most likely?
Fixable?: probably (parts availability permitting).
Economically?: dunno.

OP is in Canada Samsung Product Warranty Information | Samsung Support CA 12 mth warranty.

But do any retailers there offer longer warranty in the sale price, or sell longer add-on insurance that cover faults like this that has been purchased; as we have in the UK?

I had 12 month and bought the in store, the store being Best Buy’s extra 12 months so both are sadly expired. May have to look into getting a new TV

I have that on my Sony 55" XD93 (2017 model), I have three lines instead of one. Thankfully I still have warranty and Sony are giving me an 55" X94J as a replacement.
