Feed Shed from Spa Panel

I'm adding a spa which I plan to feed from a 60A GFCI in the main panel which will feed a spa disconnect with 6/3 NMD. From that point a 50 amp breaker will feed the hot tub with #6 THHN and #8 Grnd. The spa panel has extra spaces and I'd like to feed my shed which is 30 feet away with a 15A breaker.

The shed has 4 lights and 2 outlets. Does anyone think the inspector will have an issue with this?

EDIT: This is in Canada so CEC applies.

The panel load should be based on total calculated load. If the load of the spa plus the expected load in the garage is less than 60A, it should be ok.

I'm waiting to hear back from the manufacturer regarding the actual draw of the tub. The shed has 4 led pot lights and one incandescent inside so I don't see load being an issue. I will do a load Calculation once I hear back.

Thanks.

You might want to check to see if a bare ground is allowed. In the US there are restrictions on the bare ground and spas.
