Default GR Sti power steering fluid/ auto trans fluid?!

Hello all,

My GR sti is a bit low on power steering fluid, wanting to pick up some and top it up this weekend.
Manual recommends: DEXRON 3 automatic transmission fluid.

-is that right, automatic transmission fluid in power steering, not power steering fluid?!?

-locally available at Canadian tire (Langley)?
-any brands to stay away from?

Thanks guys

Subarus have always used ATF for power steering fluid, going back over 30 years. Same with Nissan and many other manufacturors.

90% of subaru power steering pump failures I've seen are due to using power steering fluid.

Any brand of ATF should be fine. I run Pennzoil in my GC autocross car.
