Looking for electronics parts shop in downtown Montreal

Does anyone know of an electronics parts shop in downtown Montreal?
A place where I can buy IC's transistors, resistors, switches etc.

The is a nice small but well stocked one on Queen street in Toronto, but I could never find anything equivalent in Montreal - preferably downtown.

On Decarie?

That's not bad - pretty easy to get to.
Any recommendations? I didn't think those places sold to individuals.

Active Electronic on Ferrier/Decarie (Naimur Metro)
http://www.active-tech.ca
I'd call first, they seemed a little limited* when I needed special fuses - they have another store in Mtl also.

I can't recall the name of the other store - it's besides the Kraft Plant on Devonshire - The guys at active tech recommended it...

Hey,

I realize that this post is fairly old, but it's one of the first things that came up when I searched for "electronics montreal". If anyone is interested, I made a map of the electronics shops that I know of in Montreal. Here's the URL:

Map of the Peg????

I didn't know there was a Laurentian autoroute in Manitoba?

Electrosonic might be helpful. Electro Sonic - Distributor of Electrical and Electronic Components

I haven't been down to Active Surplus in a while, heard they moved and are a lot smaller now. Too bad as they had lots of neat stuff.

KW surplus in Kitchener is still pretty good and along the lines of Active, KW also used to sell scrap plexiglass and lucite which was handy for projects. They also sold lots of army surplus clothing like chemical warfare suits...

Sadly long gone was Forest City surplus in London Ont, one year they had a bunch of surplus AV Roe binders from the Arrow project. They also had the mechanical gorilla like Active.

Something weird going on at your end SINC - when I click on the posted Google Map link, the Montreal map comes up and the location of the places I know is pretty accurate.

It's strange that no one mentions this, althouhg it's in the google map posted above<:

Addison Electronique, 20eme Avenue near St Michel is by far the best supplier for passive comoponents, wire, connectors etc.
Site internet Addison Electronique Ltd. Website

If you want semiconductors, the best source isn't local:
DigiKey Corp. | Electronic Components Distributor | Canada Home Page
They'll ship you a single transistor or a thousand, overnight for $8 brokerage and duty included form the US. MAke sure you use the Canadian site as the prices on it include duty and brokerage. Parts ordered before 7PM central ALWAYS arrive the next morning. Once you try it, you'll be addicted.
