If you want to buy probiotics in Canada it is not quite as simple as it is for residents in the US who have a very large selection online at Amazon.
But fear not - I have a number of online choices for you below.
As well - try at your grocery store, supermarket, health food store, drugstore or pharmacy. Shoppers Drug Mart, CostCo and Walmart all stock probiotics. CostCo prices seem to be a little cheaper than Shoppers Drug Mart.
You can get your pharmacy to order in ones likes VSL 3 if they don't have it in stock and Jamieson's have an extensive range of vitamins and probiotics.
You can buy a great selection of books on probiotics from Amazon Canada including my favorite The Probiotics Revolution.
You'll find dozens more books on probiotics here.
Below is where some Canadians have bought their probiotics.

"Jamieson brand chewable probiotic in Winnipeg."
"Advanced Biotics by AOR (a canadian product, from Calgary) from Whole Foods in Oakville, Ontario - "they had it in the fridge section."
Tuzen from Calagary Superstore. Seems a lot of pharmacies have to order it in.
Karen asked: "Has anyone found Align in Canada? I had to have a friend send it. Cost a fortune!"
HMF by Genestra from her Naturopathic Doctor, but they are available online too. They have different strengths...very good. Contains Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium lactis.
Cultured Care Probiotic Gum at Prairie Naturals, Coquitlam, B.C.
"OptiBac Probiotics range can be bought online and shipped to Canada, for a postage and packaging fee of just £6. Worth considering for those who do not mind ordering online! The range is high quality, and good value."
TuZen at Shoppers Drug Mart. "Seems to be available at most although you might have to ask. Taking it for IBS."
Therabreath products at Shoppers Drug Mart, Toronto. "But not their probiotic Aktiv K12 which is the product I really wanted."
Many people who want to buy probiotics in Canada want to read about the supplements first. Here I list the pages that I have which give information about probiotics and also include a link to a Canadian source.
This means you can buy the supplement mentioned locally - and within your own country this is sometimes free shipping. That always sweetens the deal!
Hope you find it helpful.
Streptococcus salivarius K12 is a probiotic bacteria that cures bad breath. Check out these products to stop bad breath in its tracks!
