Spend money:

Robotshop

Great site, fair shipping prices. Has almost everything, based out of Quebec

Can’t recommend them any more. Customer service when things go wrong consists of them saying “well, it is what it is” Use Creatroninc and Digikey instead.

Creatroninc

Another shop in the GTA that has a quick and clean purchasing system

Sayal Electronics

Local supplier of parts, kits, etc. Located in Cambridge across from the Toyota plant

Digikey

One of the biggest, most-used suppliers of electrical components

Microchip

What I believe is the landing page for the free samples. You have to register to use it.
