My local home depot/rona/can tire carry a limited selection. Otherwise check the local listings for a place selling bulk metals, though they may have a minimum order.

Solway Metal Sales 26 Ernest Ave Toronto (416) 531-1131 is where I would try. Be sure to visit their scrap room.

At my local metal monger they even have heatsink trims.

If these guys don't have what you want they will know who does.

Well I had to stop eBay sales to Canada because the shipping and "Customs Forms" rates got loony. About $100 minimum.

But if you really get desperate find a friend in Buffalo!
