Amendment to By-law Number 534, voted on September 9, 2019, prohibits the replacement or installation of new solid-burning appliances or fireplaces, with the exception of EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) certified appliances, meeting the emission standard of 2.5 g / h or less of fine particles in the atmosphere.
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.
