Find addresses of all raw food restaurant. Which town are you planing to visit in Canada. Perhaps someone here can give you tips. There are health food store that you can buy raw buy or something raw to eat. It would be good to have a mini blender or food processor that you can use to make some of your food.

Alissa Cohen sell one on her site, you can do research. I do have one but i haven't use it yet because we do travel by car and i simply bring my vitamix with me but if i have to fly, i will bring it because we eat so much smoothie.
Montreal, you can go to http://www.crudessence.com/ I have never been in their restaurant but i tasted their food and it is totally amazing. They do have lunch box that you can order and have it deliver to your hotel. You can contact them to see if they can do that at the hotel you will be.
You will find many natural food store in Montreal. The food is great in Montreal and typically you can find some interesting vegetable dish on their menu if the restaurant isn't raw and you can also always order salad if nothing else and bring your own vinaigrette if you make it with your blender. You can make some crackers before your travel or bars. The metro transportation and bus service is phenomenal in Montreal, so whatever you are you can get downtown no problem.
Have fun during your traveling

You'll have a blast in Montreal!
Best city to live in in my opinion and greenest urban center in the world.
Fresh fruits and produce can be found everywhere, a fair amount of bio/eco store to find almost anything you're looking for.
Only thing to consider is that nuts are hard to come by here (especially raw ones) and very expensive, so if that was a staple in your diet you might want to pick new habits before the trip.
Transportation is easy, Metro and Bus are cheap and reliable, and you can now pick up and rent bicycles through stations set up all around the city.
If there's anything you need help with hit me up, I'm used to the city :)

The old Montreal part is beautiful and the old port as well. If it is raining, you can go to the biodome over there (Next to the Olympic Stadium) so nice and if sunny, the "Le jardin Botanique" (Garden) (same area as the Olympic Stadium). It is a very clean town. There are all kind of nice thing to do for every budget.
Since you aren't into nut, you can consider dry fruits.

I don't know if the average Canadian department store would have maybe a Magic Bullet that you could buy when you got there instead of trying to bring something over on the plane. That might work for you if you are into the smoothies, juices, etc. Montreal sounds beautiful! No need to fear not being raw.

Most department stores would have a Magic Bullet or some kind of equivalent yes :)
