Most of the shisha products are in middle eastern bakerys or meatshops that sell tobacco straight out of ziplock bags.
I know the hookah smoking market is quite large in Canada, just don't know why any entrepreneur hasn't jumped on the opportunity

edit: I also don't believe theres a online canadian hookah vendor either, that would solve all our problems =D
The reason is because the tax on Shisha is VERY high ($30 tax / $10 shisha). Shops that sell shisha legally have to sell it for around $60 - $80 / 250g box of Nakhla.
