If you are interested in doing the blow-up yourself both Cineworks (in Vancouver, British Columbia) and LIFT (in Toronto, Ontario (currently closed for renovations)) in Canada have Oxberry 1600 and 1700 optical printers, respectively, on which you can blow-up 16mm and/or Super16 to 35mm.

The rates at both centres are geared toward artists wanting to take control of their own work, however if you don't have experience with optical printing and using machines of this complexity it's recommended that you contact the centres and see if there is a local artist who would be willing to give you an orientation to the gear before you start.

Hope that helps,

You might try color lab in Maryland. They've made prints, processed and transferred to DV for me and I've had only positive experiences with them.

I need to do the blow-up from 16mm to 35 mm film. I would like it to be done straight from the a/b original negative rolls
to avoid new ganerations, which I already have.
I have made inquiries in several filmlabs such as Monaco Labs in San Francisco, Alpha Cine in Seattle, FotoKem in L.A.
and in Europe in the labs in Madrid and Copenhagen.
Does anyone know any lab in U.S.A, Canada or in Europe where this kind of process is possible?
Appreciate your help!
