Default Kitec for in floor heating

I am trying to find out if it is illegal to have Kitec in our home in Nova Scotia, Canada. If you do not know please direct me to someone who would.

I don't think it is "illegal" but there is a US class action lawsuit.
It is not manufactured or installed anymore.
Suggest you call a licensed plumber to evaluate replacement. If you are selling your home, the value will be reduced due to it's presence.

There is only one resource that can give you a definitive answer... your local Building Dept./AHJ.
