From ESA site for Ontario

I have an existing range hood that consists of an exhaust fan and a lamp. I am replacing it with a new combination range hood and microwave oven. Do I need to install a dedicated circuit for this appliance?

If a receptacle is installed inside a cabinet to supply the new combination range hood and microwave, then it must be on a dedicated circuit that supplies no other outlets. If the existing supply to the range hood complies with this requirement, then it may be reused. If not, a new circuit must be installed. Rule 26-720.
