I have a 200' long driveway. I am considering putting small lights along the driveway.

1. Should these lights be on a separate breaker?

2. What guage wire should I use?

I would go with low voltage LED.

Lighting in Canada is limiTed to 15 amp circuits. You may need to up size the wire for voltage drop.

Normally for outdoor lighting like that you would use low-voltage landscape lighting. It's much easier to run the wiring for it and you don't have to worry about bearing the cable deep or using conduit.
