UPDATE from Airworthiness: A Civil Aviation Safety Inspector (CASI) looked into this occurrence. The CASI contacted the operator involved for more information and was provided with additional details of this occurrence. The Crew did not receive the green takeoff (T/O) indication on the Primary Flight Display (PFD) that indicates the throttles are in the detents for takeoff power. The aircraft returned to the hangar. Maintenance ran the aircraft to power several times and could not fault the system. The aircraft was released and departed with no further issues.

The CASI was satisfied with the information provided and advised that no further follow-up action by Transport Canada was required at this time.
