Romex through EMT


Using all the proper fittings, can I run 14/2 romex through 1/2 inch emt as a form of protection. The conduit will be buried just under the drywall. It's a 7 foot run between boxes.

Not a problem in the US, but you need to ask someone from Canada.

Instead of Roomex, can I use wire marked "12 TWU Minus 40C Flameseal." I know this is direct burial wire as it is a couple rolls I have left over from a previous "outside run" which I put in plastic PVC. I have a roll of black & 1 roll of white single conductors. Guess I would also have to run a green ??.
