Is GFCI protection required on vending machines in Canada? I know they are in the NEC but I can't seem to find out if the CEC adopted a similar attitude. If the CEC has anything on it can someone tell me the code?

I can't give a reference but I don't believe it does.
Never trust an electrician with no eyebrows!!

thanks I thought it wasn't either, just gets hard trying to keep both codes straight.
