If you are anywhere in Canada except Quebec, you apply to tha National
Library in Ottawa.
They will issue your ISBN number. It does not cost anything.

Yes Canadians must supply two copies. I believe they will pay for one only.

The National library in Ottawa.

However, if you are in Quebec, you must apply to the Quebec National Library
for your ISBN number. You must also supply copies to BOTH, the Quebec
National Library AND the National Library in Ottawa.
