You have already decided on the particular sunflower variety you want but sourcing it appears to be the issue.
The Toronto Master Gardeners do not make specific vendor or seed recommendations, however feel free to check out https://landscapeontario.com/ and search for “Retail Garden Centres” in your area. You might also try various seed banks in the area. Retail Garden Centres or a seed bank would also be able to advise if they can source the Helianthus annuus “Sunbelievable Brown eyed girl” for you or suggest a current variety with many of the same traits and that would be a great substitute.
If you are determined to plant this particular variety, you might need to find contact various botanical gardens, seed banks or the Central Experimental Farm in Ottawa and ask them for recommendations of suppliers of reliable plant or seed stock that might have this particular hybrid.
