Is a conduit/raceway installed in a slab on grade considered a wet location?

Yes, according to the 2012 Canadian Electrical Code, rule 12-928 (1) (b) Raceways installed underground or where moisture may accumulate.

I am considering buying some electrical tools in the United States. What approval mark is required to use them in BC? Is it only CSA or is the UL mark also acceptable?

There are currently a number of certification marks acceptable in BC.
