Ok,

How do we know that Shakepay/Coinsquare/Coinberry/Einstien Exchanges are any more legit in it's operations than QuadrigaCX ?

I will be more inclined seek a peer-to-peer solution in Canada. Has anyone ever used linkcoin.pro or localbitcoins.com?

You can try bisq. But limits are very low. I've been using shakepay since last summer, very responsive, and transfers are fast. Do small amounts.

I think the issue with peer-to-peer is that limits eill always be low to transfer to / from fiat, because there's no centralized agency handling verification - by design.

I need to pay for something in bitcoin soon and I'd rather not use a credit card, but the problem is I don't have X business days to wait for Interac transfers to go through on Shakepay or Coinberry, and Coinberry won't allow withdrawals for 3 days anyway. The only option that was instant was flexepin on Coinsquare but I forgot my damn password and password reset causes your account to become locked down for 7 days so that's useless now.

Anyone have any other suggestions? Maybe MyBTC.ca? EDIT: MyBTC says your initial funding will be held for manual verification, damn.

EDIT: It worked, thanks. I don't really like that I'm forced to use a mobile app but as I explained I'm out of time and options.

Now Shakepay introduced Shakepay Web, so you are not forced to use a mobile app.
