I'm not familiar with the local areas in Canada but Habitat For Humanity has local stores called ReStore. Some of the products are used, some are from local home improvement companies that need to clear out inventory, some are from contractors who have extra items, etc...

Also, I am not sure about CraigsList in Canada but there are a lot of listings for building materials, lighting, cabinets, flooring, etc... in the "for sale" section listed as "materials".

Also, keep an eye out in the "seconds" or "bone yard" sections of local companies (think tile or other flooring companies, window companies, cabinet companies, etc) and with the large home improvement stores. These items are usually scratch and dent, items that were ordered (custom orders) wrong for a job and such that they can't resell as new. With a little creativity and an open mind, those items can be used in most people's homes.
