Is Canadian Bitcoins Scam Or Paying?
According to scamadviser they have a trust score rating of 100% and have been around for more than 7 years. This is a good plus sign. 
However, being around for over 7 years, and their alexa ranking is still at 600k, that is not great for me at all. 
There’s traffic coming to the website for the length of time they have been around, they should have been more popular in my opinion.
On Bittrust they have a 2.45 star rating from 22 reviews. It seems that there is a lot of mixed feelings there.
However according to the website is legit and seems to have started way back when bitcoin was still $10 cost, and has never had issues with their user. 

Scambitcoin also indicates that the website is registered under the name of James Grant and location is Ottawa.
My Conclusion
I think they are legit. However, this is just my personal opinion. In other words I am saying, that I will give it a try if I wanted to buy Bitcoin with CAD. It looks pretty decent. However, I will follow the golden rule. Try first with what you can afford to lose to see how it goes first. Then go big later, if all works out well.
