Can flint be found in Canada?

The title pretty much explains it. I know there are certain mines in North America, but I couldn't find an in Canada. I was wondering if there was a possibility of any small deposits of flint in Canada, particularly Nova Scotia. I studied Geology in highschool, but I haven't retained as much information as I would've liked to. I am still thoroughly interested in the subject though!

Well I know nothing about Canada and its natural resources, however I've performed a few google searches and can't find anything obvious about there being flint in canada - most searches return companies called flint or selling flint but as for flint actually being mined, I couldn't find anything.
