Any such thing as a GFCI outlet for a 14/3 circuit?

Is there any such thing as a GFCI split receptacle for a 14/3 circuit? If not I think it will be cheaper to re-run 12/2 wire to the kitchen and use a $10 GFCI outlet than put a $300 GFCI breaker in the electrical panel.

There is no such thing as a split-wired GFCI receptacle. You would either need to use a double-pole GFCI breaker (usually around $100 USD) or split the circuit into two 14/2 legs and install a GFCI receptacle on each leg. I do not know if if that alternative is legal for countertop receptacles in Canada.
