Hi Deb and welcome!

Look in your grocery store! Some stores sell the root ... at least here in the USA. Turmeric comes from the Curcuma genus of the Ginger family - Curcuma longa is the genus and species of the particular plant used in cooking and herbal medicine.
"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."

Just a quick look on Google shows it available for order from Amazon and at least one seller on eBay (who does ship to Canada - http://www.ebay.com/itm/Fresh-... ) if you can't find it locally. And what looks like some good information on growing here: http://www.gardeningblog.net/h...
