About Brake Levers
Bicycle brake levers come in two formats, road or hybrid / mountain bike. Road levers are designed to fit dropped handlebars whereas mtb / hybrid levers are designed to fit flat handlebars. Some brake levers will incorporate the gear levers as well, these are known as Double Tap, Ergo's or Sti's (Shimano Total Integration), this makes shifting through the gears and braking a simultaneous operation and cornering at speed a lot safer. Crosstop style brake levers are becoming popular on cyclocross, tourers and road bikes, these fit in line with the brake cables and allow you to control the brakes from the tops of the handlebars.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
I believe just about any standard road lever should be compatible with cantilever brakes, though you may find some brands of levers work better with particular brands and styles of cantilevers.
I use old-style, non-aero, Dia Compe road levers with my Tektro C720 cantilevers. But then, I use them on a touring bike and with Soma Sparrow handlebars: aerodynamics are not an issue; being able to access the brake cables easily (without undoing handlebar tape) is sometimes useful; and the shape of the bars means the cable routing is better with non-aero levers. You may have different sized hands, bars, and preferences regarding looks and feel.
