Default Water Chestnuts?

I've been looking at brewing a recipe using chestnuts. Problem is, can't find chestnuts here at all. I know the two companies in the USA that sell it, but they won't ship to me in Canada. Also, today I checked all the local grocery shops and bulk/natural food spots. No chestnuts.

But I did find water chestnuts in a can. I was unsure if it could be used in the same way as chestnuts, but a quick internet search led nowhere.

I did find this article and here is the wikipedia page on water chestnuts. Being a new brewer I am not sure what exactly I am looking for in the info.

I guess I'm asking if someone more knowledgeable has any info or can provide any info based on the links above.

Much thanks!

The only info I can lend is that water chestnuts and chestnuts do not taste the same.

Chestnuts grow in B.C. and the "crop" is a nuisance. I saw them laying on the ground, to be picked up and put in the trash. Do you have any buddies who live in the wild mountains in the west?
