I'm curious - why do you need your own hardware at a colo site instead 
of just renting a VPS?

If you want a VPS inside Canada, the biggest player (with, apparently, 
really good support) is OVH.com.  Well, at least until/unless Quebec 
secedes, at which point whether they're "in Canada" or not depends on 
where the border gets drawn :-).  They'll also colocate your servers.

Also with a good reputation is Blackbridge 

However, keep in mind that $50/month for 3U of colo rack space is 
actually a really good deal... one I don't think you'll be able to match 
in Canada, at least not at reputable establishments.  (I mean, 
seriously, you could put your server in my rack for $50/month, but I can 
only guarantee you about 10Mbps symmetric right now.)
