Ditto on what folks have said....shipping costs can be prohibitive if you have much of anything shipped....wood gets heavy if you pile up much of it. Being in Alberta I'm not sure which suppliers here in the states would be good for you. I strongly suggest you contact some local beekeepers and ask for some help/information in locating a source for your equipment.
Most "beginner kits" have things that you don't need in them and maybe don't have what you do need. Michael Bush has a good list somewhere about what isn't so good about a "kit"...maybe he'll speak up soon.

Note, on February 7-8, 2012 the Alberta Beekeepers 10th Annual IPM Symposium in Edmonton, Alberta will be held. I don't know if that's near enough for you or not. If you could make that one I'm sure there are probably vendors that will be there and than can deliver your order to you there at no charge. Here is a link to a pdf pertaining to that meeting: http://www.albertabeekeepers.org/documents/2012JanuaryBeekeepingForTheFuture.pdf
Check the Alberta Beekeepers website out, it has a good bit of contact information there.
