Electrical Outlet Types

There are times when the Canadian electrical code, requires a specific outlet depending on where it will be installed.

GFCI outlets ( ground fault circuit interrupter): They are required where an outlet is close to a water source. They are used in basements, outdoors, kitchens, and bathrooms.

AFCI outlets ( arc fault circuit interrupter ): They protect against arcing (which can easily cause a fire). Most houses built after 1999 have AFCI circuit breakers installed at the circuit breaker box, but if you own an older property, you can have AFCI receptacles installed at the beginning of every circuit so all receptacles following in that circuit are protected. If you are renovation your home or adding a new room, new circuits need to be AFCI by code.

Tamper Resistant Receptacle: These are designed to help protect children from the hazards of inserting foreign objects into electrical outlets.  A shutter mechanism inside the device blocks access to the contacts except a two-prong plug is inserted, helping ensure foreign objects will be locked out. Tamper-resistant outlets are required by Canadian Electrical Code in new and renovated residential construction.

Standard 15 Amp duplex outlets

20 Amp Outlets: 20A circuits and breakers are usually found in kitchens, laundry rooms, and garages, which is where most of the power-thirsty appliances are installed.
