Vic's Vacs in Courtenay (130 Centennial Dr #311), Brian Knox, 250 897-4060 carries some batteries and can order them in. Use Hi-performance.ca site, select batteries and get the description and model for him. Sounds like he mainly prefers to deal with the Enrich Power brand.

NRC Hobby Shop in Nanaimo also sells batteries.

Hobby Wholesale based in Alberta also sells batteries.

HobbyKing is based out of Hong Kong, but has warehouses in several countries including the USA. Lots of stuff, but as of Fall 2017 you can't get batteries shipped from Hong Kong, and apparently they are quite expensive to get across the border.

Aliexpress is a Chinese company, which usually provides free (but slow) shipping. Morris has had good luck with them.

Banggood is another Chinese company, again offering free shipping. Morris advises he has also had good luck with them.
