Buying first bike

Hello, im looking into buying my first bike since I was really young.

No clue where to start, good brands, prices etc.
Im looking for a good quality bike but don't need "the best" out there.

Any advice on brands to stay away from or good brands?
Budget is around 300 and under (canadian)

Here are a couple I was looking at in the store (canadian tire).
There are a couple local specialized bike shops on town but i'm scared what the prices might be like there.

SuperCycle

CCM

Schwinn

Any input would be appreciated.

Cheers.
