Where do I find tempeh in Vancouver or nearby areas?

I want to go vegan, but I read that tempeh is the best source of protein for vegetarians. Can't find any place that sells it though. Where do I find it in Vancouver or nearby areas like Richmond/Burnaby. Also does anyone know if tempeh is called champa in Hindi/Punjabi?

    If this place doesn't have it they know who does.

      Tempeh isn't difficult to find here. It is, however, often hidden away in the freezer section of some fairly mainstream stores and greengrocers. I can get it at Donald's Market or Drive Organics.

        I've seen it at Famous Foods (on Kingsway at King Edward).
