Where oh where to get canned or packaged poutine sauce (e.g. St. Hubert) in east end Toronto

Would like to make poutine at home and am wondering where in the GTA, preferably east end (I live near Woodbine & Danforth), I can purchase the sauce mix or canned sauce. Not looking for a big make it myself project, so any help would be appreciated.

  1. I'm almost certain I've seen it at Dollarama and Metro (not surprising since those are Quebec based chains).

    1. there is nothing really special about the sauce its just a regular gravy mix, just get a can each of beef and chicken gravy and mix them together, add some fresh cracked black pepper to it to give it more of a bite.

      1. I have seen the Poutine sauce in Loblaws and Valumart. Possibly in Metro. Usually near the canned gravy section.

        1. I have seen it at Metro too, and maybe Dollarama. The authentic Quebec gravy should be a light chicken gravy, never beef.

            Alas, I have never had an "authentic" poutine, but I'm going to try to make it. Thanks!

          2. the Sobeys near me (on Queensway and Parklawn) sells the St. Huberts sauce in containers by the roasted chickens -- i'd assume the other stores are the same?

              1. Dollarama does NOT sell St Hubert Poutine, but Metro and Loblaws both do (Confirmed that both of the stores at Vic Park and Danforth sell it) Dry and canned- poutine gravy specifically (Not the hot chicken gravy, which is different)

                It was on sale at metro a few weeks ago- 4 for $5.

                  Thank you! VP & Danforth is my local store.

                    I've seen it at the Sobey's at Yonge and St. Clair as well.
