In addition to what carlton already mentioned you may be able to get stick insects more readily than we can here in the U.S. a lot of chameleons love them. I once got an oustellets from a guy who fed stick insects to his chameleons quite a bit I had a hard time getting it weaned onto other insects as it seemed to prefer the phasmids over other feeders. Considering that they are parthenogenic and potentially invasive here in fl (not to mention illegal.) I opted away from the phasmids. Being in Northern Canada you may not have such problems. I would also suggest taking advantage of the diversity of any moths, butterflies (monarchs aren't good but most others are quite fine.)and grasshoppers you can get now this will go along way towards helping through the long winter. I faced the same problem when I lived in the Adirondacks in Northern N.Y.. Oddly enough there is a greater diversity of insects there that are useful for feeders than there are in Fl. where I live now. It is much easier to get insects year round here however.
