How many duplex receptacles allowed on a 20amp circuit in Canada?


Hopefully somebody knows the correct answer. I always see reference to 12 outlets but never a differentiation between single and duplex.

I have a small shed/workshop (20x10) and had 6 orginally but wanted to add one outside also.

Thanks

A duplex receptacle counts as 1 outlet
Reference: Ontario Book 1 Electrical Code Simplified pg 54

Maximum of 12 outlets per circuit.
