I'm staying in an apartment for 3 months. Can you easily buy adapters there, or should I buy them here (Canada) first?

I would take one with you.

I'm sure you can buy them there, but I would prefer to have one with me personally.

You can buy the easily in Super U and other supermarkets, no problem.

Some appliances are two round pin and others square 3 pin BS ones.

At home we have several adaptors for the mozzie mats, iron and hairdryer as ours have two prong plugs and our sockets are all three.

The apartment should have them though.

We keep our worldwide adaptor in our luggage so we always have it with us whether necessary or not. It doesn't take up too much room in the case and worth it for the convenience of having it if required.

I always pack a small power bar so only need one adaptor, and can plug in more than one camera battery, laptop, etc. for recharging. It has been very useful in the past.
