You'll find the information on the European BioSafety site. The specific
page with addresses is:
http://biosafety.ihe.be/Guidelines/CAN/LCDCGB/lbg3_e.html#3.1
There are regulations regarding transport of pathogens as well, also given
on the same page.
Another section of the same site gives E. coli as risk group 2.
The index to this site is:
http://biosafety.ihe.be/Guidelines/CAN/LCDCGB/index.html

No doubt this is also available on a Canadian server, but I don't have the
URL.
