I think if OP was originally seeking Amsoil, he should check out http://www.hplubricants.com or message the owner @High Performance Lubricants about which exact product to order something equivalent or better. I'm sure they would be happy to fill the order.

Their oils meet or beat A40 as well.

The Walmart available oils mentioned should be fine as well but I heard Amsoil.

OP also mentioned being in Canada as to availability.

For Euro oils: https://www.hplubricants.com/hp-synthetic-motor-oil-2-2/

High Performance Lubricants’ Euro passenger car engine oil is a multi-synthetic high performance motor oil made with the best choices of additive chemistry. This series takes advantage of high quality PAO base oils delivering superb pour points as well as an advanced VI Improver that has superior shear stability index. These oils are formulated with specifically chosen esters that can help minimize intake valve deposits, maintain clean engines, and provide elastomer compatibility. HPL Euro PCMO is formulated with extra anti-wear and antioxidant additives to minimize wear while offering an extended oil life compared to other motor oils. These premium oils are not something you will find on the shelf of a discount retailer. If you are a person looking for a product that will outperform traditional mineral and synthetic oils our products will be a perfect fit for you.

They have a separate distributor page for purchasing. The link is in the product description link.

They also have three different tiers of "regular" or non-Euro PCMO.. all of which are phenomenal.
