Will Games on Demand transfer with a region change?

I'm in Canada right now with an American Xbox LIVE account. While XBLA games work on both regions, I've only been able to download Games on Demand when my Xbox was in America - they refuse to download when I'm using it in Canada. I'm interested in doing a region change, but I'm scared my download history for my Games on Demand will disappear. Has anyone had any luck with this? My hard drive doesn't have enough space for all of my games at once so I'm really scared of switching the region.

If I do switch the region, will my Games on Demand finally download properly? Or were my the licenses I bought for these games only good in America?

Much content is region locked, so you probably will run into issues.

Content you’ve already bought

Before you move your account, make sure that you’ve downloaded any avatar items, games, game add-ons, and video content that you’ve bought. No digital content is guaranteed to work after the migration, and there are no refunds if items stop working because you change your account region.

Content you’ve bought may continue to work on any Xbox 360 device if the content has a valid license. If that content gets deleted or you change consoles, you may be able to re-download the content and re-acquire a license for it in the new region, but some content (mostly video content) is only permissible in certain countries. This content may be blocked in your new region because of licensing or regional restrictions.

I'm unable to fit all the games I've bought on my hard drive... If they do go away, and I switch back to America in the future, will they come back?

They will come back if you switch back at a later date, but remember you cannot change regions straightaway after changing, there is a time period before changing again.
