indoor outlet

I need to install an outlet on a stairway wall as my aging parents had an electric chair lift installed (they wouldn't do the electrical). The stairway wall is shared with the attached garage. The garage and basement are finished so fishing a wire might be out of the question. I was thinking about taking power from a garage outlet installed for the garage door opener, running it along the outside of the garage wall and then through to where the outlet will be installed inside the house. I live in Ontario, Canada and am not certain of the codes involved but I was wondering if any of you out there have any suggestions for a possible diy project. The walls are plaster and lathe so there might be some wire mesh to deal with. I was thinking my options are armored cable or cable and PVC conduit.

Thanks

Put an extension ring on the garage receptacle and run conduit.

Is the lift on battery or ac?

Bigboypete, the unit has a battery and an ac adapter which I imagine is for charging the battery and/or operating the unit.

I've seen a few of those units used commercially and one used in a residence. They operate from the battery, the 120 volt power is strictly for a low amperage battery charger.
