Do you still have the the key for the drivers door? then You are going to have to buy another fob, either from the dealer, e-bay, or there online companies that sell replacement fobs, and then reprogram it. The instructions are in the owners manual.

You can't program a fob (unless you're a dealership and/or have access to a Tech2 or MDI & TIS2Web) without at least one fob (two fobs if it is configured as a non-US car). This will be a tow for service.

You do need a door key to begin the procedure.

I don't know about Canadian cars but US STS fobs can be programmed or reprogrammed by the owner with or without an available recgonized fob. You do need a door key to begin the procedure.United States Owners are permitted to match
a new transmitter to their vehicle when a recognized
transmitter is not available. the procedure will require
three ten minute cycles to complete the matching
process. Do the following:
1. The vehicle must be off.
2. Place the new, unrecognized transmitter into the
transmitter pocket with the transmitter buttons
facing the front of the vehicle. The transmitter
pocket is inside the console bin located between
the driver and front passenger seat.
3. Insert the vehicle key into the key lock cylinder
located on the driver’s door.
4. Turn the key to the unlock position five times within
five seconds.
5. The DIC message will display OFF-ACCESSORY

6. Press the OFF/ACC button (ignition switch).
7. The DIC will read WAIT 10 MINUTES and will
count down to zero, one minute at a time.
8. The DIC will display OFF-ACCESSORY TO
LEARN again.
9. Press the OFF/ACC button (ignition switch).
10. The DIC will read WAIT 10 MINUTES and will
count down to zero, one minute at a time.
11. The DIC will display OFF-ACCESSORY TO

2-7If you have additional transmitters to program, this
process can be repeated until four transmitters have
been programmed. The DIC will then display MAX
# FOBS LEARNED and will exit the programming mode.
When you are done programming transmitters, press
the unlock button on each keyless access transmitter
twice. After performing this process, transmitters
previously programmed will no longer work with your
vehicle and must be reprogrammed. Sorry for double post-sticky mouse button

Yes, I went back, looked at the manual and found what you posted. I was sure there was something a little different in the service manual but you're right. Give it a try. Canadian vehicles are definitely exempt and require two fobs present to add any more.
