Washroom Receptacles

Hi all,

Just wondering if somebody can provide me the Ontario Electrical Safety Code (or Ontario Building Code, which ever it is) requirements for the location of receptacles?

For example,

Minimum Spacing, Minimum Height, Minimum Distance From Wall or Door Edge, etc.

and any other pertinent requirements.

Currently I have a single receptacle / Double Toggle Switch at the door entrance (couple inches in from the door edge). I was thinking of either A. keeping that setup and adding one more receptacle on the adjoining wall or B. removing the receptacle and installing two receptacles on the adjoining wall maybe 3 ft apart, centered on a 48" vanity.

I have GFCI receptacles for the washroom.

If possible please include the section that the requirement is located in the code.
