You don't have to order it online to get uni. I'm in Canada too and there are at least 6 or 7 fisheries that provide uni to various retailers across the country. I know there are some in Nova Scotia as well as a few in Vancouver.
I'm in Calgary and have seen uni sold in the big asian supermarkets. I've seen it both pre-packaged (and vacuumed sealed) into trays (which is the usual way it is sold) and on the rare occasion, have seen actual, whole, live, green sea urchins for sale as well. I am pretty sure most major, urban places across the country you'd be able to get it (at least in trays, usually frozen) at an asian supermarket. Have a look around if you are really interested.
As I mentioned before though... it's not cheap!
