You are not too far off, actually add in repeated apologies to the neighbours for construction sounds and construction garbage in the back yard and I’d say 90% that was me

Maybe Windsor plywood. I'd call and ask anyway.

Thank you ! Planning on calling around in the morning. Just thought maybe someone was in my shores before and might have a suggestion

Can you post here to let us know if you find some? We may be restoring an old farmhouse and it would need shiplap in some areas.

As soon as I figure it out I’ll let you know ! I knew I wasn’t the only one that needed shiplap :)

So update after a bunch of phone calls ... the last guy I spoke to literally laughed at me and said “good luck finding shiplap in Canada right now” ... no where in the city or even outside the city has any shiplap siding. But a few of the guys I spoke to suggested cutting out the rotten wood and replacing it with plywood on the grounds that it will be buried under siding of some sort. Cedar shake (the shingles) runs about $8.00 per linear foot, which covers up the plywood, so although that is not as visually appealing, it is the most viable option because it will be covered up anyways. And final note according to 3 of the guys I spoke to, the plywood actually gives more strength than the shiplap they used to use ... Also, fml, a 4’ x 8’ sheet of construction plywood is going to $90.00 + taxes right now for 5/8” (which is the shiplap standard thickness)

Thanks for that info. If we buy the farmhouse we would prob be a year away from needing shiplap so hopefully this wood craze is over by then.
