Fuse panel grounding

Good day,
Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. I have purchased a summer home and starting new with the electrical. I reside in Ontario and have pulled all permits and disconnected from the main line. I have 200amp service and installed a new fuse panel. With regards to grounding I require #6 Bare copper with a clamp to either a 3 foot grounding rod or grounding plate. If I go with the grounding plate how far down does it need to be and how far away from the residential building must it be? If I go with the grounding rod can I just use one 3 foot and how far away does it need to be from the residential building? The #6 bare copper wire then needs to be directly connented to the ground of the fuse panel plate/bus.
Secondly, I plan to have the microwave over the stove. Can the microwave and the overhead range light/fan be plugged into the same electrical outlet? On it's own circuit?
Thank you,
