I am unaware of new electrical codes for 2012 in Manitoba or Quebec. However, in Ontario, an updated version of the Ontario Electrical Safety Code will take effect May 1. And the CSA recently released a new edition of CSA Z462-12 Workplace Electrical Safety, which is based on the 2012 Canadian Electrical Code, Part I. It’s been extensively updated to provide guidance on:

Integrating electrical safety programs into OHS management systems

Implementing best practices for working on and around electrical equipment

Demonstrating due diligence in prevention of electrical injuries.

I hope this information helps.
