Canadian Tire is the cheapest, but their selection is all the low end. I wouldn't go near for skates, everything else is fine.

Sportchek is the next step up, decent prices and better selection. Be very wary of their skate sharpening, often times it's an improperly trained high school student doing a 1/2 assed job.

Local hockey shops probably priciest. Might be a bit more, but you'll get the best service, if you get skates baked I'd definitely only go to a true hockey store, and you'll get a decent sharpening job.

There's alot you can save money on, but decent skates I wouldn't cheap out on.
