For your needs, any mainstream laptop will work. ASUS is a good brand, pick something you like from them, really any model will be good. Battery life you probably won't hit 6 hours with high use unless you get a system with a weaker CPU and run on lower brightness.

That looks like a really good laptop. Similar to the one I mentioned, although that is the US Amazon site. It doesn't have the model number so I don't know how to search for it in Canada. And wow that thing is over 6 pounds
