I found a few tools but I am unsure if they will even work with the Canadian version of the Note3.
May work, it's just a windows batch script, from what I can gather the N900W8 is essentially an N9005 -(calcprogammer1) says he flashes N9005 roms on it at least, So one is to assume it will back up the EFS
You'll know if it doesn't work it won't output a file on to your PC, the file should be about 14-20MB in size. Try it and see it won't do any harm.
EDIT: all you gotta do is plug the phone in and unlock it and let it do it's thing, no need for download/recovery mode etc.
(EDIT 2: You will need busybox installed to restore you EFS also just an FYI, few people had issues restoring it until they installed BB)
