Are receptacles inside a garage required to be GFCI in Canada? No sinks involved.

The short answer is no.

They used to be required years ago, all grade level garage and outdoor receptacles were to be connected to the same GFI.

edit : my statements pertain to Ontario code. Not sure about rest of Canada.
