There are several places out there that can do a good job hemming heavyweight denim, but I don't think a run-of-the-mill tailor can do it, and none of the places that I know of are in Canada. If you are willing to ship your jeans to the US to have it done, I would recommend Blue in Green, Self Edge, or the Denim Doctors at the Hollywood Trading Company for a great hem. You can even have a chainstitch hem at these places if you want instead of the stock lockstitch hem that N&F jeans typically come with.
