Electrical Code in Ontario for Light above shower


I would like to install a light fixture above a shower in a second floor bathroom. There is only one light fixture in the bathroom (above the vanity). Does anyone know what the building code is in Ontario for light fixtures above showers? Can I simply use a recessed light fixture that is intended for over showers (http://globe-electric.com/product/4-...rushed-nickel/) and add a wire from the existing light fixture to the new one? Or does this need a GFCI?

Thanks,

A light fixture that is intended for showers is fine.
From the esa site.

Question
Does the Code permit a light fixture to be installed in a shower?
Answer

Yes, as long as the fixture is approved for wet locations.

Rule 30-318.

Ontario Electrical Safety Code 25th Edition/2012.
