I emailed them today.
Nope they aren't CSA approved, so not legal in Canada.
You can still order them and they do ship to Canada.
Good luck finding a licenced electrician to install it as they could lose their licence. And if u had a fire you wouldn't be insured.
Looks like the generlink system is the only way to go up here which is about triple the cost.

Dave, check with your panel manufacturer as well. They are also usually much cheaper.

Yes many manufacturers make their own interlock kits. You may want to look into this.

Last I knew, the Canadian Code required a transfer switch, period. Breaker interlocks NOT allowed.
