    All I know about Canadian wiring practices is they use this stuff called Tek cable. Sounds like coated MC?

    They also have what I like to call "DC Romex" with black and red conductors.

    Can we now create a UK/BS7671 forum? We're excluding half the English speaking world without it.
    Our comedian shamelessly joked about a blackout. Talk about dark humor.

    Yes, that's close to what it is, PVC coated MC. Actually is it XLPE conductor insulation (XHHW-2), then a PVC inner jacket (like Tray Cable), an aluminum armor like MC, then another PVC outer jacket. MC, even the versions with the outer jacket, doesn't have the inner PVC jacket, usually it just has a clear mylar sheath.

    Spelled "Teck" and most of what is sold is 90C so it is called "Teck 90". It's actually nice stuff to work with.

    conductor ampacity

    Some may recall a few code cycles ago we had some ampacity changes in our tables. It was my understanding that was part of an effort to harmonize with the CEC.
