Assuming you have a Praxair they (should) have dry ice.
There's a MOQ though and it's not very cheap.

High Park in Toronto...the Grenadiar restaurant in High Park has dry ice. Ask for Tony. He'll hook you up, but it's not cheap!!

I got some from Praxair in Stoney Creek for a recent camping trip. Price was $2/lb however the guy gave me some kind of deal, $40 for approx 30lbs split between 2 coolers.

I have no idea what you need it for, but if its for a camping trip, I would suggest getting a better cooler and just buying the regular block ice for $3/block.

Well said. Dry ice is not cheap.

Yeah I don't know why it's so expensive up here. Apparently it's dirt cheap in the US. Widely available too.

If you have the freezer room you could go to the dollar store and buy those gel packs.
It's a little more than $3/block in terms of volume but they're reusable.

One good reason for Dry Ice:
In the summer months, if anyone is running an ice cream business with carts or ice cream bikes, dry ice is a must to keep the ice cream cold a lot longer than an ice pack would.
Many special event places have no place to plug a cart in.
Health inspectors are very strict. They like to see dry ice. Otherwise they lecture on the urgent matter of replacing ice packs frequently.
