I've read in other places that if you create a baby registry through Amazon(.com) you will get some kind of bonus gift from Amazon - but I think this only works in the US and not for Amazon.ca? Are there other places (Babies'R Us, BBB, etc?) that would be "beneficial" to create baby registry by gett...

We are thinking to send the kid to Victoria Education on Leslie/Major Mac for JK. However, it is a bit far from our home at Bathurst/Major Mac.
