Just search Nikon D500 vs. Canon, Camera Decisions has more than you need / want to know.

The EOS 7DII is older than the D500. They would be the direct comparison for heavy-duty, all-weather, cropped sports models. The EOS 90D replaced the 7DII as the 'current model' as Canon discontinues their DSLR products and don't intend to create more of the 7D-series.

You can probably pick up a used 7D Mk II pretty cheap. I still enjoy mine and will not be going mirrorless any time soon.

90D is a bit faster, much better AF responsiveness, much higher resolution, does excellent video where D500 is a total fail in that area.
Also ALL EF lenses ever made work perfectly with the 90D.
Nikon cannot make that claim.

Not with the same specs as the D500. If you want the equivalent, you'll have to buy the Nikon.

Chg_Canon is correct... to add a little:

Personally I would not think of the 90D as a "replacement" for the 7DII. The 7DII has lower resolution (deliberately, less susceptible to camera shake blur), more durable (200K shutter actuations vs 120K), better weather sealed and a magnesium body shell (vs plastic), dual memory card slots and a somewhat superior, more customizable AF system. If you're looking for a Canon camera and can find a 7DII new, go for it. Still a very good DSLR They are discontinued now and unavailable in most stores, but occasionally can still be found.

Canon is phasing out their DSLRs in favor of their R-series mirrorless... but there is no APS-C format camera in that series yet (Nikon D500, Canon 90D & 7DII are all APS-C format).

There is strong rumor of an "R7" coming out sometime next year, which a lot of people speculate will be one of two possible APS-C additions to the R-series and will likely be a top-of-the-line camera intended to serve the same roles as the 7DII. Of course, it remains to be seen if and when that might happen (even the R7 model name is just a guess). Only Canon knows and they ain't tellin'. For that matter, Canon (like all manufacturers) have been having some supply problems causing production delays. So even if/when a new camera is formally announced, I wouldn't count on it until it's actually sitting on store shelves.

Nikon is basically doing the same thing... transitioning from DSLRs to mirrorless cameras. They have two APS-C models in their mirrorless Z-series system: the Z50 and a retro styles Zfc. Neither of those are D500 equivalents, though. That DSLR is still available, too. Another problem with Z-series is they have limited lenses so far. While both launched their systems in 2018 and Nikon actually was 2 or 3 months earlier at the time, Canon already has a a considerably better native RF-mount lens selection for their R-series cameras.
