Question about generator ready load centers

Is this Siemens load center legal in Canada?

When I had my electrical service upgraded I had a generator ready panel installed. I wanted that Siemens panel because it had an automatic transfer switch instead of having to switch manually.

What I got was a Schneider QOGP3P604436200 generator ready load center that does not have any kind of automatic switching function and must be switched manually when power goes out.

I haven't been able to find the Siemens panel available in Canada anywhere that I've looked, and even Amazon doesn't have it available.

It also doesn't have a cover for the main lugs so I know that isn't legal in Canada.

So is this whole panel out of the questions for us canukistanians?

If so, is there a load center available in Canada that does have an automatic transfer switch?
