Where to buy Car Primer Paint Pen in Canada?

I'd like to repair some rust spots on my car before winter sets in, and can find the base & clearcoat in pen form but can't find primer in pen form. Anyone know who sells it?

I've searched Cdn Tire, Napa, googled, looked on Amazon.ca but was hoping to avoid buying from a US-based company as the shipping charge is ~$20USD.

Hoping to avoid the spray can form as I don't have a garage and am concerned about overspray in the interior (some work is on the interior door jamb) and elsewhere. I've never done car paint repairs before so am hoping another RFDer will share their experience.

Any insights much appreciated - TIA!

cheers,
:)

Hopefully a pro helps out here but ultimately I used a paint pen and an aftermarket spray to seal. Overspray was reduced by making covers for all the surrounding paint (tape / paper, whatever).

We'll see what other ideas come up. YouTube videos might help.

I just buy the spray primer from CT and spray a bit into a small plastic cup. Then I use these fine tipped paint brushes from the Dollar Store to touch up paint chips. Works great.
