kitchen wiring for refrigerator - Canada

Hi Ray - I have a related question. My electrician ran the wiring for my kitchen reno and I'm going to finish it off by installing the outlets and breakers. He did three wire red/black/white + ground) for the refrigerator outlet (not switched, obviously).

Im assuming the intention was to install a single pole 240 breaker that powers each receptacle in the outlet separately? Does that make sense?

Canada has different rules than the US. The NEC is not the same as the CEC, but does have similarities. Receptacles in kitchens seem to be wired as a split device under the CEC.

Not many here from the northern side of the border, but one might stop by.
