Is there anywhere in Canada that ships snails?

Hello people!
Im a total newby to this forum and have a question for whoever can answer.
I'm looking to add some new snails to my 40 gallon tank (and my boyfriends 75 gallon hehehe). I already have some zebra nerites and recently got my hands on 2 chocolate rabbit snails (LOVE EM!)
I've looked into a bunch of different kinds of snails for my freshwater tank and now have a little list of ones I would like. I just can't find somewhere that carries them!

I'm really interested in getting some (Red) tracked nerites and horned nerites. Id also LOVE to add some gold/orange rabbit snails as well.

Anyone have any ideas? I've found great sites for the states but not canada
