Will changing primary domain kill my SEO? This post is outdated

We have been thinking to change our pirmary domain in the shopify admin to redirect to our .CA domain instead of our .COM domain to target our Canadian customers more. Will this kill our current rankings for keywords that we are already doing well for?

Also will all my backlinks basically be dead as they are all .COM links of our site?

I appreciate any help, thanks.

It won't kill your SEO, but it will take a dip briefly.  You can also simply tell Google that your .com applies to Canadians using Google's Webmaster Tools.
