Craigslist.org and Kijiji.ca contain postings from users across Canada selling a wide range of collectible items, including books, figures and memorabilia. Each site requires users to select a specific region to view listings, as the sites operate on a local community model. To search on Craigslist.org, choose from a list of major cities to find the relevant subsite. Kijiji.ca presents the various provinces along with a separate list for smaller territories and allows users to choose from cities within each location. Listings on each site contain a description of the item and a method for contacting the seller, with some listings also offering pictures.

Auction sites such as eBay.ca allow users to narrow results to a distance within a specific area to reduce shipping costs or allow users to visit sellers in person. Many thrift stores also commonly sell collectible items, though the variety and availability of items varies over time and by location.
