Bathroom exhaust vent distance from HRV supply inlet?

I live in Newfoundland, Canada. What is the minimum distance I need to install my basement bathroom exhaust vent from my HRV supply intake? Or is there even a requirement in the national building code 2010?

Thanks for any help.

While I am not certain of any rules, I think that I would offset the exhaust vent by 2 - 3 feet and, if possible, run it higher than the HRV. The exhaust vent will have warm, moist air - which will rise.
The HRV is pulling in colder air and exhausting warmer, moist air from the house.
