I didn't check NAPA or Part Source but I did check Jarry Auto Parts which is a big parts dealer here like NAPA. They didn't carry it. The dealer doesn't carry Mobil 1, it carries a version of Castrol 5W-30 but I went with the recommendation I found in the thread I linked to in the first post.

You might be luckier and find it easily in Toronto but here in Montreal the usual places just didn't carry it. What I found surprising was that Canadian Tire didn't carry 0W-40. They carried TONS of Mobil 1 but no 0W-40. They had some 0W-20. I've never even heard of that and they had it but no 0W-40.

Anyway, try your local guys, including Canadian Tire/Zellers/Walmart for it. You might get luckier. If you don't then go to the Imperial Oil web page under Canada and you'll find a phone number listed where the 0W-40 is described. That's how I found my source.
