Small white animal

Perhaps it was an Opossum?
I live in the Orangeville, Ontario, area and today, while driving down a country road, I spotted an unusual looking animal by the side of the road.
It was completely white in colour and seemed to have the nose and face of a rat.
However, it appeared larger than I would expect a rat to be. I'd say it was the size of a small rabbit.
I've Googled the topic to see if I could find out what it was, but have not had any luck. Does anyone have any ideas as to what it could have been?
Thanks.Hello there, I believe what you saw was an Opossum, which are becoming more common in southern Ontario.
