Default Ontario Canada source for Baltic Birch...?

Sorry guys/gals, but I promise I did do various searches before posting what I thought would be a common inquirery.

I'm currently in the hunt for the best pricing for Baltic Birch ply in central Ontario, Cdn.

So far... The best I've managed to come up with is A&M Wood Specialty.
A & M Wood Specialty - Sheet Goods - BIRCH, Baltic

I'd appreciate opinions on the listed asking price of $68cdn w/o taxes, for the 60x60x3/4" sheet. In trying to recall what I've gleaned from various threads, this doesn't strike me as that far off the norm. However I'd be extremely thankful if any could pass on sources they've used in the past/currently which are either cheaper and/or pleasant to deal with.

TIA

There is Central Faibank Lumber in Concord if you are close to Toronto.
Also Peacock Lumber in Oshawa if you are in the east.
Peacock has a price list on line.

None of those carry it this far west.

Not here either, or at least I haven't seen it.
Rona had something that was "supposed" to be BB plywood but I wouldn't touch it.

I'm actually just North of T.O. so I'll definitely be taking a hard look at what they offer.

They should.

It's a regular stock item at Windsor countrywide I'm told by the manager of Chilliwack:
Windsor Plywood Locations

Cheers!

Ouch... The only Ontario location is in Thunderbay...!

Although I do appreciate the suggestion, and I didn't exactly say where in Ontario I'm located. The 17hr drive (one way) to the Thunder Bay location is a little more time/$$$ than I'm willing to commit.
