Any local considerations aside, for some time now, the split receptacle is not a kitchen requirement in Canada anymore it has been superseded by the requirement of GFI protected receptacle if it is within 1 metre of the sink. Because GFI's are difficult with a split duplex receptacle the standard is a 20A circuit.
