Default 3pin to 3pin fan extension cable

Does anyone know where to get a 3pin to 3pin fan extension cable in Canada? So far the only place I can find them is in the US. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

They're kind of a pain to find. Sometimes surplus stores will have them in their miscellaneous computer spare parts section. Also good places to check are general electronics stores.

Cooler guys sells them super cheap but they're based in seattle. 5 dollar shipping to Canada. 3 Pin Sleeved Fan Cable extension 12 thru 48 inches 4ft = 2.29 plus $5 shipping. Sleeved too :)
