There may be Metal Supermarkets outlet in your town of Calgary and they usually order perforated metal from here: http://www.diamondman.com/index.html

McMaster will ship to Calgary if you can't find it elsewhere: http://www.mcmaster.com/ This is the cheapest source of perforated metal I've been able to find.

Default let your fingers do the walking

Try the yellow pages. Sheet metal, perforated metal or expanded metal. A couple of calls and a few requests for direction ought to get you where you need to be.
If you plan on insulating the perf metal I would suggest you check out the pages under powder coating and see who will coat the sheet with nylon. There should be a number of shops happy to do so. Keep us all posted as to how things work out. Regards Moray James.
