I am looking to make an escrow purchase from another member on this forums, and I need BTC, since I only mine for fun, and gamble it all away, I need to buy my coins..

I'm in Canada, and need about $650-675 in USD worth of BTC.  What's the best way for me to go about getting this?

I see there are some sites selling, but I am always leery of sites without some research.. anything I can trust here in Canada?

Thanks

I recommend both Cavirtex.com, and canadianbitcoins.com. Not the best rates, but both companies are trustworthy and reliable.

cavirtex is great, and you can pay via your online banking.

No longer buying/selling Casascius coins. Beware scammers.

Looks like https://www.canadianbitcoins.com/ might be the winner.. I can send direct as a personal payee from TD Easyline!

The other site looks like an exchange, but not as straight forward.

You have more options in Canada than any other country in the world. Bitcoin has always been a Canada-centric thing.

I've left MtGox to CaVirtex a year and a half ago !

Very nice to deal with CaVirtex !!!  I'll never trade on Gox again..

Virtex is my favorite way to move cash in and out of BTC !
