As Peter said, Bancroft seems to be the biggest and most well known Canadian show. There is usually a small handful of international visitors from the USA or Europe, but in general it's pretty much just a Canadian show. My impression (although based on only 2 visits) is that 95% of the buyers and 99% of the sellers live in Canada. It is difficult to organise a truly international show in Canada because their strict Customs protocols make it difficult for foreign dealers to bring their rocks into the country.

There are other countries that have no really international shows, for the same reason: Australia, Britain, Switzerland, Russia...

Thank you all for the info. As Alfredo pointed out that their customs is really strict and since I am an international exhibitor, I guess it won't be a good idea to attend shows in Canada for now as exhibitor.
