I love newegg.ca, most of the time they ship from New Jersey (at least for me) always comes fast and their customer service is superb!

I've noticed there are a lot of stuff that the .com stocks but not the .ca. Example, .ca has no SSD's and a lot of Icy Dock stuff is missing as well.

Put in a request for the item to be available on the .ca site.

I'd suspect this is mainly because of warranty differences. For example, until recently(August or July), Samsung did not support/honour any warranty on their hard drives, as they did not officially sell them here as of yet(meaning if you bought one in Canada before then, it was obtained through an American distributor, not a Canadian one).

Like supergrover said above, if theres and item you want, request it.

I think they need to check on a case by case basis weither or not they are allowed to sell it in Canada, and if it will be supported by the manufacture.

Not true I was only charged GST on my recent order. I live in Alberta.

Also their shipping may be a bit higher but I believe it includes insurance since there is no option to add any during checkout. With my last order I did a price match at NCIX just to compare the final cost and the difference was only a couple bucks.
