I found a cool site that seems to be legitimate, people are posting payment proofs online. I used to do GPT (Get-paid-to) sites back in middle school, but for fiat. Looks like now there is one that pays you in any cryptocurrency you choose.
RaiBlocks is one of the fastest transferring cryptocoins out there, and therefore, has many use cases, and has potential to skyrocket in value once it hits the big exchanges. It has already skyrocketed to over $2 USD without being on any major exchange. If you want to get in on the action before it does, I recommend BitGrail.

I've found that the prices are lower on QuadrigaCX, and although they don't have debit/credit card option, there are easy ways to fund the account like interac-e-transfer (email money transfer).
For some, verification may be a pain in the butt, but this is the safest exchange to purchase or sell your crypto for Canadians!! Get it over with NOW so that you won't miss out on a good DEAL!
While you wait for verification, you can use Coinbase, but once I completed the verification process (took a couple days to process), I use Quadriga much more than Coinbase!
