garage wiring

I have added three, three wire duplex recepticals to my garage and one garage door opener receptical and am wandering if the wiring meets the Ontario code requirments. From a junction box supplied with a 3 wire 15 amp. cable I wired two split three wire duplex recepticals and a two wire garage door opener receptical. Then from the one three wire duplex receptical, I added another three wire duplex receptical. I have not been able to find in the Electrical Code Book or the Simplefied Code books if this is okay or not okay. It does not meet the kitchen code, but this is not a kitchen. Would anyone be able to point me to any Ontario Electrical rules on this?

As far as I know this is fine. Just make sure that you use double pole breaker and that it is installed so that you have 240 volts across to two hots.
