Both SEALs and JTF2 are Special Operations Forces, which means that they do relatively the same type of job, and go wherever they are needed. (ie: A JTF2 team is just as likely to perform an underwater insertion as a SEAL team.)

And as for the citizenship issue...yes, you can maintain a Canadian citizenship even after becoming a US Citizen. Both Canadian and American laws permit dual citizenship. And as far as I know, foreign military service does not force you to relinquish your Canadian citizenship. However, I'm not entirely sure about the rules within the US governing US Armed Forces service and dual citizenship.
