Hi, I'm looking for some help regarding code in Ontario.

Although I have a Chevy Volt that I charge on a regular 120V outlet right now, I'm looking to install a 240V outlet in the garage and use the charger that came with the car for faster charging.

I plan on running 6 AWG cable from the electric panel in the basement to the garage and use NEMA 14-50 connector. I would like to confirm:

1) Can I use 60AMP breaker or must I use a 50AMP?
2) Is there specific recommendation for feeding the #6 wire through to the garage through the plywood? I.e. any specific insulators that I have to use?
3) Is there specific code about distance between outlets, or height of outlet? I plan to install it about 5 ft from the ground in an external box.
