Are there any Major differences between the CEC and the NEC? Can you give an example?

Or something that you think may be different but not sure?

The NEC allows AL & CU in 250-66
The CEC allows only CU in table 17

Not sure of this (due to lack of much knowledge of NEC)but I believe there is a significant difference in the use of the words "Ground" and "Grounding" versus "Bonding" The CEC differentiates these terms and uses them explicitly as designated in the code.
Bonding is the interconnection of non current carrying components in an electrical system whereas Grounding is the direct connect to Earth.
It appears to me that the NEC uses the terms interchangeably and is therefore confusing.
Do I need to study the NEC more thoroughly?
