I have shares issued from a company I used to work for in Canada, and was wondering what was the best way to go about selling some. I've had a google around, but can't seem to get an idea of who to use.

Does anyone have a broker they're happy with, or have some suggestions? Thanks.

I've used DirectBroking for NZ market trades and OptionsXpress for US markets. Both without any problems.
If the company you hold shares in trades on a Canadian exchange though you might need to llok further afield. Give DirectBroking a call in the first instance though, they might point you in the right direction, i've always found them really helpful on the phone.

Another thought on this. When you were given these shares did you receive a letter/some documentation from a third party sharebroking house. I believe this is the common way for companies to issue shares to staff. Might be worth contacting them if you did get a letter.
