See all you need to know about the new heating regulation in Montreal

What is this regulation?

As of October 1st, 2018, stoves and solid fuel stoves (such as wood, pellets, ecological logs and charcoal) must be replaced if they emit more than 2.5 g / h of fine particles into the atmosphere. After that date, the use of solid fuel burning equipment will become prohibited unless it has been recognized by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) stating that its particulate matter emissions are within the standards.

As a resident, you could be fined up to $ 2,000. Companies could receive a fine up to $ 5,000 for using a non-compliant device.

Who is concerned?

All the owners of the 19 boroughs of Montreal city with a fireplace or solid fuel stoves (such as wood, pellets, ecological logs and charcoal) that emit more than 2.5 g / h of fine particles into the atmosphere.

NB: If you have a gas or propane fireplace, you are lucky! You have no changes to make and you can continue to use your device, because this new regulation does not concern you.
