Right, just never under the same screw, in a case where 2 conductors are allowed.

The Al conductor needs to be the correct gauge, usually one size larger than the corresponding Cu.

I understood anti-oxidizing paste to be a requirement, but that could be just a Canadian thing.

It's not a requirement of the NEC unless the wire manufacturer or the panel manufacturer require it.
