Hello, my Yashica mat needs some repair. Is there any good repair shop for cameras around GTA?

I took mine into Downtown Camera (Queen Street East) and they gave me the name of a guy who repairs them. I don't have that info handy, but I suggest you check with them.

I have used Roger at CAMTECH in Hamilton and he did a great job repairing some damage on an old brass Cooke Portrait lens.
Talking to other people, he is highly recommended.

Second the recommendation on Roger
588 Concession St Hamilton, ON L8V 1B1
Third on the recommendation of Camtech. I've brought my Yashica-12 and Rolleiflex 2.8F to him for CLA and repair work.
I knew he was good when he cradled both the Yashica and the Rollei. Fair prices also, plus a good selection of used gear and film!

Thanks for recommending Camtech.
After corresponding by email with a local camera repair service, I showed up only to find the place closed 1 hour before the posted closing time. I left a phone message at the number on the door but did not receive a call back.
As luck would have it, I found this recommendation and just happened to be visiting someone in Hamilton that weekend, so I dropped off my lens and was quoted less than half of what I was quoted by the local place.
I just received the repaired lens, less than 2 weeks after I dropped it off, at the price quoted. Excellent service!
