If it is a stove like a MSR Pocket Rocket I have bought the gas in Walmart store in the US. SO I would guess they would be available .

gaz or gas

Butane/Propane for camp stoves readily available
at mec and sporting stores as well as some general Gas station mini stores as they often carry camping supplies.

Canadian tire carries white

Canadian tire carries white gas and cheap butane green containers, they'll be your best bet across the country for ease of finding a store. If you have a specialty canister like Primus etc. small camping stores will be your best hope, and MEC which only has about a dozen locations across the country.

Do you mean Gaz, as in a older blue French stove? If so, the threads are different than the canisters typically sold in stores that fit onto canister stoves such as MSR. If you have a Gaz stove you will need to find Gaz canisters, a difficult item to find in the U.S. Or did you mean cartridge of "gas" for stove? If so, then the advice you were given is good.
