I’ve been getting lots of emails with the same question: “where to buy Kindle Fire in Canada?” ”can you buy a Kindle Fire in a canadian store?”… so let me give you a quick answer: you can’t. Don’t pay attention to some crappy websites out there that say you can get a Kindle Fire in Canada, they are just schmucks trying to make a quick buck with false claims.
“OK, so I will try the good old trick of buying my Kindle Fire in the US and then drive back home and use here in Canada” you might think, but unfortunatelly that is not so easy: even if Canadians smuggle one over the border, there’s the problem of content. A Kindle Fire taken abroad would only work with the Amazon services available in that country. In Canada, where only Kindle books are available, the Fire’s value would be significantly reduced. You won’t have access to instant streaming or the MP3 store, since the Canadian licensing costs are far above those found in the U.S.
So, to sum it up, The Kindle Fire delivers Amazon content such as Instant Video and Amazon’s free cloud storage but that’s not available for people in Canada, which makes the sale of the Kindle Fire here a bit doubtful. Sorry folks
Ok, so that’s the bad news, here is the good one! You can still have many other Kindle models delivered to your home in Canada. Here is a quick summary of each one, feel free to click on the images to go directly to the page where you can read more about them and make a purchase.

The kindles above can be bought from Canada and sent to a Canadian address. There is yet another new model of Kindle but this one is NOT shipped to Canada. However, if you have someone in the US who can help you out, you can send it to a US address and then have your frined send it over to you in Canada, and it will work with no problems at all.
