What is Canada HQ?
Canada HQ is an all purpose darknet market site that is especially catered towered Canadian and US citizens (they do not ship drugs outside of continental North America) . They offer various products such as various drugs but also digital products and services and are one of the few market sites that also offer (stolen) hosting access to Cpanels, servers and even domains.
Additionally, Canada HQ offers the purchase of noble metals (Gold, Silver, Platinum) and of course also offers a wide variety of drugs, though if you are looking for Cannabis-related products, other markets such as Cannazon may be more suited for you. If the market site is up, you can find the onion link for Canada HQ to the right of this article.
While Canada HQ offers a wide variety of products, certain items are prohibited to offer. Those are the following:
- fentanyl and analogues
- hitman services
- underage videos
- fraud related to USA (credit cards, profiles, logs, accounts etc)
Additionally, sellers are not allowed to ship drugs outside the US or Canada. Furthermore, sellers are not allowed to ask for direct contact or payment outisde the market and to ask buyer to finalize transaction early or pay before they receive the product.
Sellers are required to have proof for the goods sold such as bank log requires video proof with timestamp and logging inside with username visible at time of delivery, credit card requires screenshot or call recorded that card is valid and have balance and shipping goods could require tracking number.
CanadaHQ also has an Escrow service so that all purchases are safe. Not that after a seller is paid, you cannot recover funds or issue refund.
Every kind of data including purchases, logs, messages or delivery details are removed from market after 30 days and when order is marked as completed, delivery info is purged from system
Same as with all darknet sites the usual security recommendations apply. Most importantly: stay anonymous. Use the TOR browser only and don’t use the TOR browser for any regular (non-darknet) browsing.
Ideally, you have a dedicated system or at least a dedicated VM for all your darknet activities. Keep your darknet PGP keys and other credentials limited to that system only, do not mix it with any activities that would expose your identity.
Treat your dedicated system like a work-system: Only install the software necessary for your operations do not install anything for entertainment or other purposes. Subsequently, resist the urge to browse Twitter, Reddit or any other social media sites while you have downtime. For this always use your regular system.
For additional system security, we recommend you run a secure operating system like Tails or Whonix on your dedicated system for darknet activities. We also recommend using a VPN as an additional security measure since TOR will only anonymize your browsing sessions but not other traffic.
Especially when using any public WiFi hotspots you should always use a VPN when accessing the Internet since you don’t know whether the access point is compromised. A VPN ensures that all of your traffic, no matter what application, will always be strongly encrypted when passing the access point, this protecting yourself not only from eavesdropping but also possible identity theft.
