I've seen quite a few breeders for several reptiles on this site: BC Reptile Club http://www.dasnakes.com/bcrc/

By doing a quick google search I've also found these:

Edmonton Reptiles Forum
http://www.edmontonreptiles.com/forum/index.php?

Reptiles Canada Forums
http://www.reptilescanada.com/forums/index.php

The Reptile Forum (Canadian also)

Steve runs a good forum (Dassnakes) but check out Reptiles Canada website. You got to be a member to cruise the classifieds but its free.

I would reccomend Jim (J&J) as well. I got some Boas off him not too long ago.

I checked out J&J on a whim the other day. There's some incredibly cool animals in there! Anyhow I did happen to spy a baby tortoise (don't know if it was a box tortoise or not) but I definitely suggest giving the place a drive by sometime.

It's gonna be really tough to find a CB box turtle, there is big time demand.

If you end up trying a wild turtle try and get either an Eastern or Three Toed rather than a Western Ornate. No box turtle makes the transition to captivity well but westerns are especially bad IME.
