        Lee Vally has rare earth magnets that size if that's the same thing.

        I found Digikey service the same shipping from the US as it was from Canada.

          George is right. Lee Valley has a wide selection of neodymium magnets.
          They have 3 stores in Toronto.

          Digi-Key ships to Canada for $8.
          No minimum order.
          Almost always next day delivery.
          Make sure you are on their Canadian site for correct pricing.

            In Hong Kong ..but Evan imports quite often to Canada from them. They might have what you want.

                Not sure where you are getting your news from?
                I just got a letter this week from Electrosonic that they had moved down the street to Markham Ont?
                DigiKey just shipped to me from their office in N. Dakota?
                If the order is over $200.00 shipping is free.

                  I got some magnets pertty cheap off ebay last time I bought some... some nice 1"x1" Cylinder magnets.. and about 50 each of 1/4"x1/4" cylinders and 1/4" cubes

                  Makes for an intresting random fridge scupture/plaything when you add in some 1/4" ball bearings. Just make sure to put a peice of paper under em all or it ruins the fridge quickly.

                    Electrosonic ships from new york (thats their warehouse now, it used to be in markham 2-3 years ago) [Phone their markham location]. Digikey ships from the states if they have it in their warehouse, but since their catalogue is so big, it ships from china on the uncommon items (unless the parts you're buying are made in north america, but how often is that the case?).

                      I guess this card I got in the mail this week must have been snail mail!!
                      It reads verbatim:
                      ANNOUNCEMENT OF RELOCATION OF ELECTROSONICS CORPORATE HEAD OFFICE.
                      Effective Jan 15th 2011 Electrosonics head office will be moving to
                      55 Renfrew Drive, ste 100
                      Markham, Ont 905-946-0100?
                      The shipment this week came by Purolator from Ontario??.
                      My orders with DigiKey are phoned in at the end of the day, the next morning they are on the door step, from China?

                        I buy magnets from A1 Electronics (QEW & 427).

                        http://www.a1parts.com/

                        They have good selections and better price than LeeValley.

                          Digi-Key is not a Chinese company. They are American owned and located in Thief River Falls, Minnesota. They have offices in Minneapolis and call centers in Europe and Asia. They ship and market world wide which includes Canada too. Anything on their website marked as "In Stock" is sitting in their distribution center in Thief River Falls, MN.

                          How do I know this? Mrs. dkhntr04 and about 2,500 of my "neighbors" work for Digi-Key.

                              Okay, I stand corrected about Digikey.
