If it's the same as in the US, samples have to be submitted to to IC for testing in order to get approval. It's a costly process and either RS chose not to spend the money or it's in process and the approval hasn't been granted yet.

Have a look at this thread from back in April.

According to an email reply from GRE:

Thank You for contacting GRE. The PSR-410 is designed and Type accepted for USA market. We have not type accepted for IC as of yet. After submitting for IC Compliance and approval, we will have a Firmware update to support Canadian Bandplan. Unfortunately there is no ETA to when the Canadian IC compliance application would be submitted. We are currently studying this option.
I guess they never did submit it to IC for approval.

In any case, that shouldn't stop you from getting one if you want it that badly.
