Thanks for the update and hope Nymoc will be able to fulfill your needs. Let us know if you get your silver nitrate from them, and keep us in the loop on your emulsion work...

I am sure there are probably other sources for these materials in Canada, so if anyone knows of any, please add them to this thread (but please, only if you have CONFIRMED that they will sell/send to individuals in Canada). Sorry if this post seems a bit Canada-centric, but it seems as though our options for sourcing some materials are more limited than our neighbours to the south, particularly for personal/hobbyist use!
As best I can tell, Silver Nitrate cannot be shipped from the US to Canada. This includes the photoformulary website, and the "cjchemical" ebay store.
In addition (as I mentioned in my original post) some Canadian chemical supply stores will not sell to individuals. The places I checked include Anachemia and Boreal/Northwest.
Also, thanks to those who posted the information regarding the process of making Silver Nitrate... very interesting, though I am hoping to avoid that complication if possible.
If you are coming to town, and need chems, I likely have enough to get you started with a lot of stuff, although I am not in the mood to sell off the silver nitrate I have around. Other stuff will go for a fair price; not more than I paid, and if it was free to me it can be free to you.
Yes, Dave I am a fair bit of a mix from raw nut, but have not made my own stuff from nitric. That and hydrofloric I do not keep in the house, although I have a fair collection of stuff that if my wife ever cottoned onto she would flip.
