So sorry you are going thru this
does your OB have any advice? there are medications to take to increase your supply which i believe are allowed in Canada. Are you giving bottles? I would stop all bottles and pacifiers and make sure the baby can only suck at the breast. Skin to skin as well. If you need to supplement (which obviously you do need right now) i would look into a Medela SNS or use a syringe or feeding cup. The more you get baby on the breast, the more your body will be signaled to make milk.
here is some info on relactation
i would also see if there are any La Leche's anywhere near you and if you can call them and talk to them on the phone.
