GFCI and switches/lights

Hello,
I am finishing my basement and have not started on the bathroom as of yet. I understand CFCI are required to control outlets near the sink and that you can use the GFI to control down stream plug/outlets also (if I'm incorrect about this let me know). If I have some light switches on the opposite side of the wall where the shower stall resides(and plumbing for shower head ect) do these need to be GFI controlled also, or is the GFCI really only required for plugs/outlets close to sinks? (there will be no whirl pool tubs ect in this bathroom, just a sink,shower,toilet).

thank you

I will point out to all that the poster is from Ontario. So don't give him U.S. advice. The codes are different. There are several Ontario experts here, so I'll let them answer.
