Unfortunately, McMasterCarr does not ship to Canada unless it is with companies they have been dealing with for a long time (before the policy change to not ship to Canada).

Would you recommend just installing the bulbs into the gutter with no reflector then?
If you are trying to maintain a lower light aquarium, then I think the reflectors would not be necessary. T5HO bulbs put out a lot of light.
