Itís a 20 amp circuit. Check your breaker panel if you already have one. If not, you will have to install one.

Dishwashers are better to be on a dedicated circuit, the only exception would be is to put a disposal on that same circuit and thats because the two appliances dont usually run at the same time.

Check the data plate but you should be fine with #14 on a 15A circuit. 20A circuits are not used nearly as much in Canada as they are in the USA.
