As I am sure you have noticed nothing in the gluten free world is inexpensive. I buy alot of my nuts, almonds, walnuts, pistachios at Aldi's which seems to have the best prices. Sorry but I am not familiar with what's available in Canada.

I LOVE them. It is a goldmine of great stuff.
Plus they have a selection of Certified Gluten Free flours and foods.
They also have candies, spices, dried fruits, and bulk prices.
I highly recommend them.

If you're buying plain unseasoned, unroasted nuts you don't need to worry about gluten.
My own experience wouldn't agree with that, I'm sorry to say. I have no allergies to nuts, but I've gotten glutened from unseasoned, unroasted nuts multiple times (lovely vertigo reaction - loads of fun). Haven't really found any nuts at the regular grocery store that haven't given me at least a small reaction. Unfortunately, quite a few nuts are processed in facilities with wheat, whether the label says so or not (it's not legally required to say 'also processed with wheat).
Transportation and growing practices may contaminate plain nuts, too, I understand, if one is sensitive enough. :-(
We've just started trying anuts.com for nuts and I believe rawfromthefarm.com also has dried fruits that should be gluten free. Depends on your level of sensitivity, though.
