There are certainly websites that sell replacement handles (Although most often for more WELL KNOWN Brand Name Pots)
GOOGLE = Replacement Pot Handles Canada

Thing is though you’ll spend a frickin fortune on parts (so not worth it)

I gave up inexpensive pots & pans years ago... there just is no value to be had in them

Invest in a good brand name set (Lagostina, Paderno, Henckells, Cuisinart, Calphalon, KitchenAid, Lodge, Martha Stewart, Creuset, Emile Henry, etc) all stainless steel or enamel on cast iron. Not cheap but they last FOREVER... you can even hand them down to your kids / grandkids.

And because they are ALL METAL they can go stovetop, oven, fridge, freezer no problem. And if you opt for stainless steel with tempered glass lids, you can easily find repacement lids if need be (cause pots come in universal sizes).

None of these brand names are cheap... far from it.. some are downright expensive. But look for them on sale, or odds and ends (rarely full sets) at places like HomeSense

Once you own good pots & pans, you’ll never go back... and wonder why you did not start a collection sooner.

Cookware with plastic handles is awful. If you can afford it ($200-$300 when on sale), replace it all a quality clad/tri-ply set with aluminum/copper sandwiched between layers of stainless steel, and of course, metal handles. Nice even heating, never warps, easy to clean, can go directly into the oven, and lasts a generation.

I have pots similar to these and the handles are all ruined.

Any place in the GTA who sells plastic handles for pots?
They look like a good set.
They may be a Lifetime kitchen set which were not cheap years ago. If so you can get replacements here, https://biz.regalware.com/alt/porders.pgm?type=lifetime for about $9.00@.

Good luck on your search.
