Expensive, but they should be hardy in Ontario...

I'm not sure if they ship to Canada, but I got a few to try in my zone 4a food forest from Reeseville Ridge Nursery.  They are pretty affordable so it doesn't hurt to try.  Here's the persimmon text from their website:

Diospyros virginiana E USA                           Persimmon
Medium height tree, much taller than wide. Interesting scale-like bark, edible plum sized fruit borne along the stems. Zone 4. Plugs 3.00 6-12” $4.00

 
Bring me the box labeled "thinking cap" ... and then read this tiny ad:
