Several times a year Canadian Tire has a sale on their Maximum brand wrench sets. They are extra long handled, strongly resemble Snap-on, and they are unconditionally guaranteed. The set is for 30 wrenches of metric and SAE from about 1/4 to 1 1/16 and about 6mm to 24mm I think (I would have to go out to my tool box to be sure). The sale price is about $53, reg $150. There are a few gaps but most sets do have a few gaps. The open stock price for a 9/16 is about $16 so I consider the sale price to be a good deal and they are nice to use. Canadian Tire also puts Torque wrenches on sale and they are also pretty decent. I haven't bought any sockets from them as I really don't need any more but I would say they are just as good.
Craftsman are okay too. They are unconditionally guaranteed and I have never had a problem with warranty with Sears in 45 years of buying tools from them. My brother had to beat a socket off a nut once with a ball peen, which split the side, and they still gave him a new one. Sears also has good sales from time to time but they also usually have a few gaps in the sets.
One other place I've picked up some cheap wrenches in open stock is at NAPA auto parts stores, a large chain here and in the USA. They are a little on the short side of average but I haven't had any problems with them and if I remember correctly, they are also guaranteed.
Avoid made in Brazil, India, Taiwan, and China in general. One exception, if you are moving to a part of Canada that has Princess Auto stores, is some of their Taiwanese "specialty" tools that you might not use that much or don't need to be extremely high quality. Examples: the long handled wrench for idler pulleys $10, crowsfeet sets about $17, air conditioner clutch tool $10, and door panel and window crank removal tools from $4-10.
Hope this is helpful and welcome to the forum and Canada.
Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
