French Canadian maiden names?

As I do research on French Candian ancestors, I keep coming across surnames such as "Baland dit Latour". Is this a reference to a maiden name? if so, which one is which? I know enough French to know that "dit" means "says". I'm very confused and would appreciate some light on the subject.
