Others might be able to answer your questions better but from what I've seen from a few stills and 2 separate videos, I'd say yes that's a fair statement. Although it's evident that it's a gradual replacement of the CQB upper as both appear to be in use currently. In the video of the CANSOFCOM demo at the Maple Leaf's Military Appreciation Day members can be seen with both:

I think it's safe to say you're going to find IUR's on A2, FTHB & A3 lowers. I imagine it depends on whether it's a replacement upper only or a full newly issued carbine. Replacement uppers would likely be matched with older existing lowers (A2 & FTHB) whereas full issued carbines I'm thinking would be paired with A3 lowers? MaybeStopCalling, any thoughts?

In terms of uppers, most IUR's seen in media so far have been 11.5" CQB length uppers. Having said that, Larry Vickers posted these pics of 15.8" versions IUR on his FB not long ago.
