http://www.elann.com is canadian.  The default is to list prices in US$, but at the bottomof the front page there's a thing you can click to get Canadian $ prices. 
They have lots of different kinds of needles (including my fave, casein) as well as discounted  yarns and books and stuff.
They have 8mmx24" in addi turbos - they're $20.34 canadian.  so not cheap, but addis never are.  Also, if you always order with the same email address, they keep track of how much you've spent, and give you a gift cetificate when you hit certain milestones.- egads - I just checked, that milestone is $500US and the gift certificate is $50US.  You also get credits when you buy books or patterns.

I like this bit from their info page:
Our Nationality

Elann is a Canadian-owned company with Canadian, American, and overseas customers. You'll notice that this has necessitated making some choices  between British and American English spellings, and that what we decided upon was a compromise -- you'll see that we opted for fibre with the "re" instead of the "er," and color with the "or" instead of the "our." For check, we also opted for the "ck" over the "que", and finally, for catalogue, the "gue" instead of the "g". What could be more fair?!!

Well, if you're in Waterloo, there's a great place... The Mill Store, I think its called... On Moore street in Waterloo. Plenty of fabric, loads of yarn. Awesome place.
