Here's what I go through to hunt for treasures:

1) Sedar site - I regularly scan the new filings lists for ideas. I scan new annual reports, financial statements (for quarterly reports), take-over bids (for arbitrage opportunities), and new prospectuses (for spin-offs and other event-driven investments).

I also scan the statements of portfolio transactions for my favorite mutual fund managers at:

2) Parsad's site. Has been linked here a number of times. I have gotten a few ideas there. Great group of investors who think independently.

3) Value investors club. Two month delay for non-members. Still some good, timely ideas.

4) Insider filings sites, as discussed here previously.
http://www.albertasecurities.com/
http://www.sedi.ca/
http://www.cvmq.com/fr/publi/bulletin.asp

5) Newsletters
The buyback letter. Lists companies that are buying back stock. I found this back door link by accident. Newsletter normally costs $79/month
http://www.wall-street.com/buyback/current.html

Contra the Heard Newsletter. Deep value investors who invest in turnarounds.
http://www.contratheheard.com/cth/index.html

Insider Edge. Infrequent updates.
http://www.theinsideredge.com/

The Stingy Investor. Norman Rothery has some excellent links to accounting/business articles. He also has a subscription newsletter. You can get a free sample at his site.
http://www.ndir.com/

Outstanding Investor Digest. Pricey. You can access some old interviews with some of the greatest investors of this century.
Newsletter is pricey at $295. But is recommended by all the greats.

6) Internet Discussion boards.

Silicon Investor - undervalued Canadian stocks
http://www.siliconinvestor.com/stocktalk/subject.gsp?subjectid=16610

Silicon Investor - Value Investing thread. Mostly U.S. stocks.
http://www.siliconinvestor.com/stocktalk/subject.gsp?subjectid=10036

Stockhouse. Some very intelligent posters, and some not so intelligent. I rarely post due to the latter.
http://www.stockhouse.ca/

Les disciples de Buffett forum. In french. Intelligent investors with interesting investment ideas.
http://forum.webfin.com/

google language translator
http://www.google.ca/language_tools?hl=en

I have gotten some good ideas by looking at the other discussion boards that my favorite posters post at, too.

7) CEO interviews/conference calls
