Hi and welcome to Canada!

http://www.torontosurplus.com/ looks like a great place to visit.
There's http://www.partsconnexion.com/ as well.
http://www.digikey.ca/ Digikey has a warehouse in Winnipeg, so if you order from them, they have a CAD pricing and no lame brokerage charges.

Check your Yellow Pages for lots of smaller shops too. Young Street used to be full of them.

Cheers!

I get a Lot of my Parts off of E-Bay....I find the Prices are about 1/10th the price of retail and the Parts are of fair quality..

There are quite a few Canadian sellers on e-bay that are very reliable...

Cheers

Toronto IMO happens to be one of the best cities for electronics parts stores.

you should definitely check out Active Surplus
http://www.activesurplus.com/

it does not have a good website but it is a great store.

a more conventional electronics store that is well stocked is Sayal
http://www.sayal.com/

they have a few locations on the outskirts of toronto.

there also used to be a store next to active surplus that was quite good but i heard they moved to scarborogh. not sure about this but if another toronto native sees this maybe they can help.

consider yourself lucky, you could be in chicago where i have yet to find a good electronics store.

Hi,

Take a look at Canics: http://www.canics.com.

They are located in the Montreal area, but they ship so you're okay. They sell every electronic component parts you can imagine.

Hope it helps !
