Looking for help on Laundry Room Plumbing

I am about to replace my old washer, and I will need to rearrange the laundry room to accomodate the larger front loading machine. Piping layout is tricky, and I am attaching a diagram of how I would like to do it - provided it meets code, of course.
I think my concern is whether I am ok to use this trap arrrangement - but I would welcome any advice if there are any other code restrictions I have ignored!
I am in Ontario, Canada - let's just say we are pretty conservative but not that much different ... an example is the distance from the trap weir to the vent must be no more than 5'.
Thanks for any help

I know zero about canadian plumbing code.

I'd check to make sure you are allowed to serve two fixtures with one trap. That is not allowed here.

Thanks for the feedback Alan.
I know that a more usual layout is for the sink to drain vertically into the trap, with the standpipe feeding into the vertical drop between the sink and the trap. I've seen that layout in several places, in different states, and I do know that that layout does meet code in Ontario.
