I'm wondering if anyone knows how can I find quinoa in bulk 4-10kg here in Montreal, for a reasonable price? Any store, or may be online?

I'd say your best bet is either frenco vrac or Segal's on St. Laurent. Quinoa isn't super cheap, but frenco vrac has a reasonable per/lb/kg price and you might be able to get them to give you a cheaper one if you say you are buying so much. As for segal's, well they're the cheapest grocery store in town, and you can probably buy a lot of packages for cheapish.

I don't know if Aubut has quinoa, but it might be worth investigating.

The local healthfood store has bulk for $3.36 a pound. Better than the brand named stuff in 1lb bags on the shelves, but ... I'd like to know if i could get it cheaper.

Aliments Mérci. They are a pre-packaged, bulk store with a very large selection. Three locations: Ontario St E., Ontario St. (Marché Maisonneuve), or Marché Jean-Talon. I bought a large quantity organic quinoa there for a very reasonable price.
