You won't find good quality stuff for sale anywhere in Canada I am afraid. And you definitely won't find any sleeving anywhere like Home Depot.

Actually, I hate to tell you but Addison's here in Montreal has good quality sleeving and heat shrink.

ok, found something at Canada Computers:
Canada Computers - Thermaltake UV Cable Sleeving Kit-Black (A2379)

Kinda pricey...too much sleeving for my needs...but still, it's there if i ever need it.

From their website I don't see a whole lot of selection. And one size.

I used to buy from these guys when I was apprenticing as an electrician, but then I decided not to stay in that line of work and couldn't buy from them anymore since they were wholesale only.
I just found out they recently opened up to public buyers.
If you're buying a lot, it's insanely cheaper than MDPC. Most of it is above average quality and there's a pretty good selection.

Their PET is techflex sleeving. For the 1/8" stuff it is a 1x1 which lower quality is not possible. I have 200 feet of it that I will give away if someone pays the shipping.
