Bill Thompson pointed me to this Wikipedia page, which lists five surviving Atlas missiles:

Regarding the one in Ottawa, it states:

Atlas 5A (56-6742) is on display on the lawn in front of the Canada Science and Technology Museum in Ottawa, Canada.

(5A was on display throughout the 1960s at the former location of the Air Force Museum, at Wright-Patterson AFB Building
89 near Xenia Drive in Fairborn, Ohio. Formerly a static-test article, it is the only surviving Atlas in the original
A-series configuration, before the boat-tail modifications that solved thermal issues which caused the early termination
of the first two Atlas test flights, 4A and 6A.)
