- ElectronicGeek.ca -- Ships from Montreal, 2020 profile
- Folger Technologies, LLC -- Ships from US 24-Hours, Offers Chrome/Smooth/Threaded
- Metal Supermarkets -- usually has stock of 5/16" stainless rod, which works for 8mm smooth rod.
- Princess Auto -- steel is regularly stocked. They also have some changing surplus items and decent cheap tools.
- Generic Steel Suppliers -- check in the phone book under "Steel".
- EckerTech Inc.
Best bet is an independent local industrial supply or fastener house. You will likely have to buy a box but it may be cheaper than just a few from the hardware store. Second best is probably Fastenal/Brafasco where minimums apply.
- Fastenal (everywhere -- minimums may apply)
- Brafasco (everywhere -- minimums may apply)
- First Call Auto Supply (everywhere -- no minimum)
- Peavey Mart -- West coast hardware chain
- Local electronics stores: often have great small fasteners from MODE electronics.
- Makerparts.ca Openbuilds distributor
You can also try Canadian Tire, Acklands Grainger, Metal Supermarkets, Lowe's, Home Depot, Home Hardware, etc. Hardware store rods usually suck. Drill rod from an industrial supply will be much better for the same price.

We should put up a page on the Wiki regarding Canadian suppliers. I had a look at the Builders Wiki, but I wasn't sure exactly where to stick it. There's a section in the Mendel BOM and Mendel Buyers Guide regarding suppliers, but this might be more general than just Mendel parts.
