Whilst I can't find any clubs or retailers in Quebec I did get a reply from someone after my query:-

"As far as Brother or Silver Reed brand machines are concerned, there is no seller except individual sellers whose products can be found in classified ads such as Kijiji, Facebook Marketplace and Craiglist for examples. Pieces can be purchased in Canada at in Toronto,, E or
There is no official group, except for circular knitting machines. On the other hand, in two places in the province, there are workshops in French intended for the general public concerning the maintenance of the machine and learning to knit with the machine. Le Centre des textiles contemporains de Montréal and La Maison des Métiers d'Art de Quebec offer workshops and work with Silver Reed electronic knitting machines. These two places also award a college diploma, diplôme d'études collégiales (DEC), métiers d'art, option constructions textile, lasting three years. Here are the addresses: (workshops for the general public) (leisure courses for the general public)

Hoping that these few informations will be useful to your readers

En ce qui concerne les machines de marque Brother ou Silver Reed, il n'y a pas de vendeur sauf des vendeurs individuels dont on trouve les produits dans les annonces classées comme Kijiji, Facebook Marketplace et Craiglist par exemples. Les pièces peuvent être achetées au Canada chez à Toronto, chez, E ou
Il n'y a pas de groupe officiel, sauf pour les machines à tricoter circulaires. Par contre, il existe à deux endroits dans la province, des ateliers en français destinés au grand public concernant l'entretien de la machine et l'apprentissage du tricot à la machine. Le Centre des textiles contemporains de Montréal ainsi que La Maison des métiers d'art de Québec offrent des ateliers et travaillent avec des machines à tricoter électroniques Silver Reed. Ces deux endroits décernent aussi un diplôme d'études collégiales (DEC), métiers d'art, option constructions textile, d'une durée de trois ans. Voici les adresses : , ateliers grand public , cours de loisirs grand public
