You have an empty slot marked WH or a breaker marked WH?

WH will usually mean water heater in panel labeling.

Water heater? Your question is a little vague.

Really? You did a nice job on posting a picture? Wait to see what the electricians on the forum say about your panel.

That is a form of split buss panel. The top four spots (two breakers) are you mains.
Yours has a "lighting main" and an "A/C main".

I thought the CEC required a shield for the service conductors.
