My daughter will be taking some skating lessons at the community center and I know that the hockey helmet we got at Canadian Tire for her was too big and heavy and I think one end broke off.
Are there hocket helmets that are smaller and fit little girls better and where can I buy them in the GTA? A quick check on canadiantire.ca only yielded those big and round hockey helmets.

Best bet is to try and go to a store that deals with hockey equipment on a regular basis all year round like National Sports or Just Hockey...and have someone who knows how to fit a helmet properly do it for you.
Usually ( though not always ), they have staff that have has some basic training in how to fit all hockey equipment properly - including helmets.
You basically want a good ' YOUTH ' hockey helmet - they come in Toddler, Small / Medium, Medium / large sizes - of a major brand like CCM, Bauer, Mission, Nike etc.

And if you buy the helmet at Vaughn Mills, be sure they make any adjustments right then and there in front of you when while your daughter has the helmet on .........again, they should adjust and fit the helmet for you at the store...this ( fitting / adjusting ) isn't something you should have to do on your own when you get home. In fact, I'd ask the staff to fit at least 2 or 3 different brands of helmets. Then ask your daughter which one ' feels ' better on her head - she'll inevitably pick one that ' feels the best '.
Make sure your daughter tries on 2 or 3 different brands of helmets will also help her to get used to the feeling of simply having a helmet on for about 10 minutes or so till she gets used to how it feels - it'll make it easier to decide on one brand over another. There's no need to get sold on the first helmet the staff member shows you either for fit or price ( i.e she doesn't need the most expensive helmet ) - take your time to get the right fit for your price range.
