It should be available in most grocery stores in the canning or spices section.  I know for sure it's there in Bulk Barn and perhaps Lablaws.   Look under the name citric acid.  In Bulk Barn they also have lemon flavored salt which could be simply salt with lemon essence or artificial lemon flavor.  You don't need that.  But if you ask specifically for citric acid there won't be any mixup or confusion.

In case you don't find it (though I'm certain you will Insh'Allah) .... you can also prepare it at home ... as my sister did.  Quite simple.  In one cup lemon juice add 2 tablespoons of salt.  Stir well, pour it into a saucepan and let it come to boil.  You will observe a white crust-like substance forming on top.  Scrape or skim it and collect this white crust in a clean little bowl or plate.  Continue boiling and scraping until lemon juice is finished in the saucepan.  Let the crust dry a bit, drain off any liquid that maybe running along the sides.  It would be a good idea to place it on a double sheet of paper towel for a while.  Then put it in a small airtight jar or ziplock bag and store in some dark, dry and cool spot.  It might remain a bit damp, but that doesn't matter.
