Default 3 phase panel (208) used for single phase (240)?

Wondering if the CEC permits the use of a 3 phase 208 volt panel as single phase 240 volt?

2-024 Has the manufacturer listed this panel for use as a single phase panel? If so, get it in writing.

Plus it kinda looks hokey to skip every third breaker for no reason.
