So I need an alignment...

Is it imperative that I bring my car to the dealership for an alignment or can
I just bring it to, let's say Canadian Tire, since it is just an alignment?

Do you guys know of any other reputable shops around GTA that would
do a good job on our cars?

What ever you do please don't take your car to Crappy Tire. Last time I brought my car there for a simple tire rotation and they ended up cross threading my lug nuts. I only discovered that after I needed to return my lease. Bring your car to a reputable tire shop and they will know how to do the alignment properly. Just my $0.02.

Last time I went to Canadian tire I had the brakes inspected on my VW Scirocco they put the lug bolts in less than hand tight. I almost had the wheel fall off while I was driving!!!

I would recommend KSL. I have been going Malik for alignments for 5+ years now. A+ work, laser alignment machine, custom/OEM specs depending on what you prefer, and with print outs. Great pricing too! I believe he charges $70.
