    I'd just do a google search for 8mm film stock. I believe Kodak is the only company making it anymore (correct me if I'm wrong). There are numerous places you can find that will develop and transfer it for you if you just do a little googling. Here's a place I came up with after a quick search. It looks like they just sell stock though:

    I think there's a few places in Toronto that do it, I wouldn't know anything in the Montreal area, but I'm sure they're around.

    Good luck!

    You would be better off buying a super8 camera if you wanted to get into it. The regular 8mm camera would be better as a decoration.

    Oh and you can buy film cartridges strait from Kodak's motion picture division through a sales Rep (listed on Kodak's website), for processing I would recommend Alpha Cine Labs in Seattle, WA.

    Lots of places in Toronto can do it to. A little closer and no crossing the border worries.

    Hunter:

    Why is the 8mm better off as a decoration? My 8mm camera (circa 1962) works great still, produces nice footage.

    Pierre:

    The black and white film factory in toronto is great for processing and they will help you track down much needed film too:
