could very well be the canister by the tank.

This code can simply be triggered by a loose gas cap. I work in the shop as an apprentice at a GM dealership, when we get cars with a P0440 code, we check to make sure the gas cap is tight and test the vent solenoid with the Tech 2. If both those are working ok, we clear the code and send the customer on their way. We tell them that if it comes back, to bring the vehicle back for further diagnosis. Most times the vehicle does not come back with the code.

Yes it is, if you look underneath the car, it's right behind the gas tank.
