Digi-Key has a warehouse in Winnipeg, but they only ship from it. No visits.

Electro-Sonic in Winnipeg, 1661 Portage AVE STE 613.

Main Electronics in Vancouver does mailorder.

Hey Mike,

I'm in Winnipeg. Don't find Active that great. Not a lot of useful stuff, and what is useful is overpriced. Try Allied. Awesome web site. Ships out of Toronto so no duty. Not even GST if you're out of province.

Re interconnect: what kind do you want to build? Years ago I decided Belden 89259 would be fine for my purposes. No hype, but works just fine. Has other uses, too, since the jacket is rated to 200C. Search for 89259 specs. Since it's "coax" it will mate well with most terminators. Most would go with RCA I guess, but I use BNC. Looks pretty much like professional cable when you're done. The challenge back when I bought was getting less than huge quantities in bulk. You maybe won't have that trouble now...
