Good luck with that.
Is there an alternative you could use?
ebay with distance filter
I am trying to think of the American company, Mc something where you can buy anything, bolts, copper, rod, nuts.
Its quite a popular store, with a good online catalogue, perhaps they have copper strips for you to tab weld.
LOL All I typed in was "threaded rod Mc" and I found it
https://www.mcmaster.com/
I know thats not what you are looking for but I knew they sold it.
There is a chance they might have something that is copper. Doubtful on the nickel.

Edit - My casual 1 minute browsings found these.

Try a metal supply shop, find really thin copper.

I think you should be able to find thin brass sheet nearby, and the price would likely be better than nickel. This might be worth an experiment, even if you prefer nickel...at least while you are waiting to get more nickel ribbon.

Toronto should have plenty of options.
Just a quick google and found this, 1mil copper perhaps not thin enough.
https://basiccopper.com/copper-sheet--rolls.html

Should be similar company in T.O.

As I was re-googling and thought of something.
What about trying to spot weld braid mesh?

this stuff - http://www.be-electronics.com/product_p/mbn0.25sv.htm
tinned Copper Sleeve for shielding, grounding
Brainstorming emergency solutions for you to try out. When done, just grind the spot welds off the 18650.
