An interjection or prompt spoken by Canadians.

I am a Toronto born and raised Canadian. This is how eh is often used here:

Typically used to replace terms such as:

"Did you know?"
Ex:
Guy 1): "McDonalds replaced the double cheese burger with the McDouble on the value menu eh?"

Guy 2): "Really? Damn... those McBastards"

Often used to replace the word 'right?'
Ex:
Guy 1) "You're going to school tomorrow, eh?"
Guy 2) "Yeah, I try not to miss class"

Also replaces 'right' in the following sentence:
ImATwin ): Taylor Lautner is so hot!
sLaShK ) : I know, eh!

"You know what I mean?"
Ex:
Guy 1): "Im going to walmart to buy toilet paper"

Guy 2): "Get the thick stuff eh? Don't be cheap"

Guy 1): "Yes of course, no one likes that thin equate stuff"

"What do you think"
Ex:
Girl 1): I bought a new pair of TOMS. Cool eh?

Guy2): Yeah, they're pretty cool. I might buy a pair as well.

"Don't you think?"
Often used to ask for a response of agreement or disagreement, similar in meaning to "don't you think?"

Ex:
Guy1): Look at those dark clouds. It looks like there might be a storm coming eh?

Guy2): Yeah definitely, I'm gonna bring an umbrella

"What was that?" or "what?"
Ex:
Guy1): *inaudibley speaking, then guy 2 catches the end of the sentence "And thats why your so dumb"
Guy2): Eh!??
Often used when someone isn't paying attention, or to assure they're listening to you.

Scenario: Two guys watching the Leafs!

Guy 1): I'm gonna order pizza pizza

Guy 2): ..... *no response

Guy 1): I'm ordering pizza EH

Guy 2): Wha? Yeah ok... shhh the game is on

Eh can mean many different things, depending on the context and the speaker... It can mean :

Eh = what did you say?
Eh? = what do you think
Eh!! = WOW!!
EH? = what do you mean?
Eh?? = your joking!!!??
EH!! = Hello..you off in the distance!!!
Eh..cmon eh? = asking them to let you pay for it next time.
Eh...uhuh = yes sure!

but in a sentance its meaning depends on the situation...
Speaker 1: Did you see that guy over there?
Speaker 2: eh?
Speaker 1: The guy with the red hat.
Speaker 2: Ya... what about him?
Speaker 1: He pushed that old lady in line.
Speaker 2: How rude eh.
Speaker 1: ya.

A colloquialism common to Canadian dialects, usually being added to the end of a sentence. The spoken tone of the word implies something to the effect of "do you agree?" Yet, the social connotation of the conversation's context usually implies that the speaker assumes that the listener already does agree. Therefore when a listener is presented with the post-sentence interrogative "eh," both responding in affirmation, and not responding at all, is appropriate.

In short, it's a term used to assert one's own opinion while cautiously acknowledging that the listener is of the same opinion.
Example 1:

Guy 1: I was on my ski-doo the other day and I saw a moose eating a bucket of poutine.
Guy 2: Fuck off, eh?

Example 2:

Guy 1: That girl has a big set of hooters, eh?
*Guy 2 is silent*

Example 3:
*Guy hands waitress a tip*
Waitress: Thanks alot, eh?
*Guy walks away*

Example 4:

Guy 1: There's some shit on your face, eh?
*Guy 2 beats the shit out of Guy 1*

it just means you dont give either way. when you say it you fling your hand either up or down, depending on the context in which you are saying it. eh! said as a short sound means you dont care, but if you enlongate it and say it more slowly with a downwards action of the hand it generally means you can't be bothered to do something (whatever the person asked you about)
short version:
male: do you want to have sex?
female: eh!

long version:
mother:are you going to go to work on your homework project tonight?
kid:eeeeeeeeeh!
