As Cougar said you can use skim-setting. 

or just manually 
in /etc/scim/global file
There is 
/SupportedUnicodeLocales = en_US.UTF-8
just add your utf8 locale like
/SupportedUnicodeLocales = en_US.UTF-8,en_CA.UTF-8

You can set default GTK IM modules by

export GTK_IM_MODULE="scim"

Just add that where you locale set for X.
