Finnex in Canada

If I posted this is the wrong forum, please move it.

I know that I can buy Finnex from Amazon.com but I'm just wondering why it doesn't seem to be available on Canadian sites or even in stores? Is there a reason why it's only available in the US?

It is because it is not ULC certified, so they are not allowed to sell it in Canada.

I had a feeling it was something to do with that. So other than that, it functions just the same here as it would in the US?

Ya it works fine here, no issues.

The only thing that could be an issue is that if it caused a fire, your insurance would probably not cover it. But really, being ULC certified will not change the reliability of the light. Otherwise there would be hundreds of lawsuits in the States and they would be bankrupt.

Like I said the light is a solid light for relatively cheap price point.
I run it on a timer for 7hrs a day and have it set at just a level below 100%, seems to be working good for me.
