Check out Bug'N'Bots... Tell Steve (the owner) I sent you.

We have a "build-fest" there every month - next one is scheduled April 14...

I think the best option for you is to buy online from United States or Japan or Europe or even from Canada. I am pretty sure that if you google you will find online shops that sell parts in Canada.

Here are some of the shops I do business with in Canada:

http://www.robotshop.ca
http://www.bugnbots.com
http://www.solarbotics.com
http://www.hvwtech.com

There are probably lots more. I know the owners of the last three personally, and they are all great.

ps - BuildFest is on Saturday, 10:00 am, at the Bug'n'Bots store in Brampton...
