Character error 

Sheriff Bud Boomer pronounces "Toronto" like a native of the city (tuh-RON-oh), as opposed to most non-natives (tuh-RON-toh). The actor who plays the role, John Candy, was born and raised in Toronto.

Continuity 

Sheriff Boomer sprays French translations onto the side of his truck. In the next shot, the truck has only English.
When Honey is making the CN Tower out of mashed potatoes, the antenna disappears from the top between shots.
During the opening suicide attempt, Roy-Boy has a strip of duct tape over his mouth and another around his wrists. After climbing over the guardrail at Niagara Falls, the duct tape is gone from both his mouth and wrists.
Just as Honey finishes disabling the Hacker Hellstorm, the camera cuts briefly to a clock that stops at "0:08" after a computer falls over and explodes. The camera cuts to the War room's countdown display, which shows the countdown stopped at "T-0:00.8", 0.72 seconds later than the Hellstorm's clock.
The boat they approach at the dock has a Johnson outboard motor, when they leave the dock the outboard is a Chrysler outboard motor.
When they approach the dock and look out, the river is calm, when they leave in the boat, the water is very rough out and large waves.

Crew or equipment visible 

During the opening scenes, the camera vehicle is reflected the President's black Town Car limousine.

Errors in geography 

When approaching Toronto, the view of the skyline is from Toronto Island, which is not accessible by road.
The motorcade at the beginning, which is supposed to be in Niagara Falls, passes Dofasco Steel, on Ottawa Street in Hamilton, Ontario. The factory shot from across the water is Stelco Steel, Dofasco's neighbor.
Boomer, Roy Boy, and Kabral are shown having to camp out for a night traveling from Niagara Falls to Toronto, and drive along rural roads to get there. The two cities are actually connected by freeways traveling through densely-populated areas, and can be driven in a couple hours.

Factual errors 

The helicopter that brings the Russian president to the White House has U.S. markings on the side, and a Canadian registration number on the belly. U.S. registrations begin with N, Canadian ones begin with C.
The orange R.C.M.P. Maintenance vehicle has an incorrect R.C.M.P. Logo on the door; with the Letters "R.M.P.C." below and "Royal Mounted Police Canada" shown on the insignia.
In the campfire scene, Boomer, Roy Boy and Kabral are discussing movies and the recurring plot element about the fact that 'the black guy dies' and they mention several examples like Jurassic Park, Unforgiven, The Dirty Dozen, Witness and Alien. The problem with those examples (although accurate in this sense) is the fact Kabral says that the black guy always dies first, and in those movies they're not the first ones to die. However, he got it right with The Shining and Forrest Gump.
