They stop making new units that use R22 next year.

R22 will still be produced.

They never had R22 production stopped, or listed for production stop in 2010.

The original date was 2030.
Then changed to 2020.
Now, the excelerated phase out date is 2015.
But will still have recycled refrigerant to use.

I was reading that they are going to slow production of it by 30% at a time. Will be less demand as it won't go in new units but I am sure the wholesalers etc will jack up the price to make a healthy profit.

They may or may not.

R410A's demand will greatly increase. So they get to raise its price.
Plus, they are already talking about a phase down in production of R410A. So its price should go up within a few years after teh phase down passes.
Probably see both gasses costing about the same.

Remember, R410A has a high GWP then R22.

Global Warming Potential.

Don't know if you canucks will have the phase down.

But, even if you don't, you'll pay the price.
