Box Fill - Ontario ?

I'm a bit confused with the box fill rules in Ontario, Please review attached drawing and tell me if both these boxes are sufficient in size to accomodate the illustrated wiring. Thanks

No, they are not, if CEC is similar to NEC. You need to bump up to a 22inch plastic box or a 4"x4" box with a mud ring.

In both boxes you have 18 cu in of wire:
7 #14 = 14 cu in
1 device = 4 cu in
