Can I get contacts if I have presbyopia (needing progressives) AND astigmatism?

I have always worn glasses instead of contacts, and only now recently have switched to progressives and I like them. I'm looking for contacts just for occasional use.
Assume I know nothing about contacts. Hard? Soft? Semi permeable? eh?
From looking at other threads that addressed the question of astigmatism OR progressives, it looks like I should find an optician which specializes in contact lenses. How do I find such a person? I know I'm going to have to leave my small town to do that, but that makes it even harder to find.
Bonus for recommendations of such optometrists in Edmonton, Calgary, Ottawa, Montreal or Vancouver (cities I'm likely to be in).
Personal experience and recommendations welcome.
