Grass needs help, which fertalizer to use?

My home is a new build, grass has not been fertilized for 3 years. I'd like to fertilize before this weeks rain fall. From my limited knowledge since my lawn was never fertilized, a good all purpose fertilizer would be best? With a even NPK, nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K). Do such products exist in Canada?

Should I go natural or synthetic fertilizer?
How to avoid grass burn?
Would like to grass to have deeper roots, don't know if the fertilizer would help, or is that more a function of frequent mowing.

Can anyone recommend a fertilizing schedule?

Peavey mart (formerly tsc stores) has a 16-16-16. This is my go to at the beginning and end of the season generally.

Also, cut long. 3" is solid.

Get a spreader to ensure an even amd measured application. I like a drop spreader over a broadcast.

I generally fertilize each long weekend.
