y'all (pron.)by 1879, U.S. dialect abbreviation of you all (see you, and compare yins).
Children learn from the slaves some odd phrases ... as ... will you all do this? for, will one of you do this? ["Arthur Singleton" (Henry C. Knight), "Letters from the South and West," 1824]
We-all for "us" is attested by 1865; we-uns by 1864. Who-all attested from 1899.

Near as I can figure out, it is a Canadian period.
Yes, I did work in northern Canada.
It's more a gesture of inclusiveness, and makes statements less terse or authoritarian.

It's cold outside.
It's cold outside, eh?

You could be multi-cultural and say, "Ya'll come back, ya'hear, eh?"
