Well, I can't tell you how much they are in Canada, a simple Google search would turn that up for you. I can tell you that the Super Slinkys are my favorite, and I've been playing them for 6 years or so now.

There are several different Slinky flavors. The best advice I can give you, if you want some EB strings, is buy a few different ones, depending on what you play/what weight of strings you like. Personally, I like my strings as light as possible, which is why I play the Super Slinkys.

Ernie Ball regular slinky's are $5.50cad each at a music store here (AxeMusic). I'm not sure what you mean by "investing" or if they're "worth it". Strings are cheap. If you like 10-46 strings, it's worth a shot I suppose. If you're used to D'addario's 10-46, then keep using those rather than switch. Right now I've been using Ernie Ball Classic 10-46 "Rock n Roll" that are pure nickel wound and I quite like them, but I might try some D'addario's 10-46 on my Strat.

just buy different kinds and see which you like best, i hardly call 4-7 dollars an investment, thats pretty cheap

if you were buying bass strings though, then id understand.

I use regular slinkys on my epiphone g-400

Whenever i get my next electric(if its a fender, which it probably will be) I plan on putting super slinkys on it.

I can't stand those super slinkys. I like the thick strings. I might at some point try something like 11-48 or 11-52 maybe. The really thin ones (9-42), I can't stand them.
