You can purchase a pocket door frame at any lumber yard. It will come with the roller track and the rollers.

Then keep shopping. All the interior doors in my house are pocket doors. The frame kit for them was less than $60. And I didn't have to go hunting for the rollers, special track, and all the other hardware. Don't even think about trying to use shower door or typical sliding closet door hardware - none of it is strong enough. My doors are solid slabs and weigh nearly 50 pounds.

Buy a good quality kit and make sure you install it correctly. They are a nightmare to fix afterwards.

Also these are Canadian HD links, op is from Toronto. HD- like others- have begun moving their pricing to reflect the recent declining value of the CA dollar vis a vis the greenback. I went to buy something from them today that was 26$ a week ago, it was suddenly 40$ now. Our brief and happy period of relatively equal purchasing power here in Canada appears gone.

just buy a kit.. the reason we say this is because if you try to do a pocket wall with lumber you will need to do a minimum of a double 2x3 split stud wall which makes a very thick wall after everythign is said and done. if you use anything smaller the studs will warp and twist on you in no time which is almost guarenteed to cause issues with the door sliding in and out of the pocket without issue
