Firstly, let's see what are the minimum requirements to be eligible for pursuing post graduation in a good Canadian University (as an international student from India) :-
i) 3-4 years bachelor's degree in the respective course with atleast 75% and above.
ii) Proficiency in English language (IELTS, TOEFL, CAEL or PTE).
iii) A good GRE score ( minimum 300+)
Now, coming back to your question - YES, some of the universities in Canada offer M.Sc. in Psychology to students with a 3 years Bachelor's degree in Psychology. I've checked the eligibility for Indian international students in University of Lethbridge's (Alberta, Canada) site.
Now, a few colleges offering you M.Sc. in Psychology without a PG diploma course in Canada are:-
1) University of Lethbridge, Alberta
World Ranking : 1278th (in 2020)
National Ranking - 33rd ( in 2020)
2) TRENT University

4) University of Northern British Columbia

7) Wilfrid Laurier University

and some others.
IELTS (6.5+) , TOEFL(80+), CAEL(60+) and PTE(60+) are all some of the accepted tests for proving Proficiency in English language, with their minimum required scores, respectively.
You may be asked by the institutes to hire a supervisor for you to guide you throughout the admission procedure. You may also need letters of recommendations, additionally.
Lastly, what is GRE? Well, it is Graduate Record Exam, with a duration of 3 hours and 45 minutes. Some of the institutions ask for a valid GRE (General) score to consider your admission. You can appear for it five times in a year through online mode.
I hope I've answered most part of your queries.
For any further help, feel free to ask in the comment section.
