    I know of at least two stores in the Vancouver area:
    The Sound Room, on West 4th Avenue (Kitsilano), mid to high end store. Probably helps to dress nice.
    Audio Video Unlimited, various stores including one near Granville and Broadway. Pretty mainstream, typical of most chain stores. Not sure how good the prices are here. Bought a car head unit there recently. Price was okay, not great for a discontinued model. This store is fairly close to The Sound Room so you can easily compare prices and inventory between the two.
    They are probably a couple of other stores that I am not familar with. Probably worthwhile to check or email Paradigm to see who are the dealers in the 604 area code (Greater Vancouver area).

    Michael,welcome to HTF.David has sent you down the right path.You can check out www.avu.ca for Audio Unlimited site.They are closing out their Surrey store to move to a new location(Surrey is a suburb of Vancouver)They have to be out by the end of June and everything is on sale.I just bought a Denon 3802 for $850 U.S.The list price in Canada is $1220.You will do a lot better with the Paradigms seeing they are made in Canada.In their site,send a E-mail to Glen,he's the Manager and will help you out.Just make sure they have the Paradigms you are looking for.The first couple of days there was a lineup to get in.Fire me off a E-mail if you need anything else.Hope this helps.
