Not in the states!

Post your location. It is VERY important in this situation.

No, it is not required (in the US anyway). There must be at least two 20-amp small appliance circuits. Common practice is to alternate which circuit two adjacent outlets are on.

It is not required in Ontario either but it is an option you can use.
