I remember getting mine from St john's hospital and I had to pay for them. But the hospital said you can return the crutches and get back your money (pretty much like a deposit)

Call up your local london drugs and shoppers drug mart and ask before making the trip. They might not have your size in. No, it's not free, lol.

If you can't put weight on it, go see the doctor.

Google up Lancaster Pharmacy, there is one near the old London Drugs on Broadway and Willow(?) and one just 10 minutes past metrotown.. they specialize in medical equiptment. If you want to go with big chain pharma, the Shoppers underneath the diamond center (@ VGH) also has a lot of medical equiptment (crutches, canes etc.)

Go to Parker Place to rent crutches

Only costs a few dollars for a week. Ridiculously cheap
