I went in to my local EB to buy a points card. To my surprise the 1400 MS points card was priced exactly $20. I live in Toronto.

I recall usually purchasing 1400 MS points for $19.99 (+tax, 13% in Toronto). Usually being around $23.

When did they make this significant price drop? Was this done to get rid of the old card stock? Or because it was going the gift card route.

They no longer charge tax.
Same as PSN cards they can't tax you because its a currency exchange not a purchase. Basically because Microsoft was calling them "points" they have been making us pay tax for years. I'm not sure if Microsoft is being nice or if they got caught being shady... but this changed a few months ago.

All those times I've been paying tax for these things I should be reimbursed.

On Xbox.com (for Canadians)

$2.99 = 200 MS points
$4.99 = 360 MS points
$9.99 = 680 MS points
$14.99 = 1040 MS points
$19.99 = 1360 MS points
$29.99 = 2080 MS points
$39.99 = 2760 MS points

if you pay with credit card you have to pay tax as well.
