Municipal By-law number 534 allows the replacement or installation of new wood burning stoves or fireplaces, provided that they are EPA certified and have a catalytic converter, meeting the standard of particle emission of 4.1 g / hour. It is therefore important to make sure that your device meets the requirements.
This regulation does not apply to appliances used for cooking food for commercial purposes, installed in a building where commercial use is permitted.
However, if you had a wood burning fireplace or stove before the by-law was passed, you can keep it as it is until you need to change it. Then, the regulation will apply.

A public consultation meeting will be held on Tuesday, August 20, 2019 at 7 pm at the Centre Harpell, located at 60 St. Pierre St., Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue.
Draft By-law Number 534-7 amends Building By-law Number 534 to introduce new standards for solid fuel burning appliances and fireplaces.
Please note that the proposed regulations deal exclusively with the amendment to section 3.10 on standards for solid fuel burning appliances and fireplaces to reduce the allowable rate from 4.1 g/h to 2.5 g/h emission of fine particles into the atmosphere. Thus the installation or replacement of a new appliance or solid fuel fireplace must now meet a rate of 2.5 g/h of fine particle emission.
The purpose of this public consultation meeting is to hear the people who wish to speak on this draft by-law. During this public meeting, the draft by-law will be explained as well as the consequences of its adoption.
