Looking for old canadian RNC for my virtual world

When I first started cruising the virtual Great Loop on my Flight Sim program (FSX), I was following my progress on a program that would show my boats location on Google Earth. Since this did not give me water depth, I went looking for a marine GPS that I could connect to my FSX. I found Seaclear II for my Laptop and also Marine Navigator app for my S5 phone. And since US charts are free, I can now follow my progress on one or both.
In order to increase the realism factor to my virtual world, I can also use these GPS and charts to locate the Buoys in my scenery files on FSX. My main problem right now is that when I get to the Canadian portion, there are no free RNC’s.
Since I am not using these for the real world, I don’t need the latest version of these charts. This is why I am posting today to see if there is anybody that might still have some older version of RNC files for the St Laurence River from Lake Ontario to Sorel, then down to Lac Champlain. If you do and you are willing to share these with me, you can either respond to this post, or send me a private message.
