You want rhizomes, not seeds. Check out freshops, hopsdirect, the online suppliers or ask your LHBS

You'll need to get rhizomes, though I'm not aware of any sources in Canada. Try Freshops.com or HopsDirect.com.

There are also some vendors in our marketplace selling rhizomes at very good prices!

Buying rhizomes from a US supplier will probably require some kind of import certificate. Most suppliers won't bother. I know Freshops does, but it's $20 USD.

Hops do not breed true, so seeds could give you odd results. Plus, half of the plants would be male.

You can order from Crannog Ales in BC,Crannóg Ales - Certified Organic Ales brewed on-farm in British Columbia but I think that you might have already missed this years deadline.
I ordered 7 varieties from them this year and I can't wait to get them in the garden.
