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.
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.
Excellent! Would highly recommend the company.
The contractor was great, his work is really good, very informative, approachable. He helped with product selection. Very hard worker. Really friendly, just a all round good guy who knows his stuff and it sure shows in is craft.

I purchased a home recently and will take ownership very soon. It is a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom house and about 1400 sqft. I would like some work completed and am wondering about costs:
- Half of the basement is finished; the other should be dry-walled, painted, etc. with carpeting
- A walk-in closet needs to be built in the master bedroom which would require bathroom restructuring for 2 upstairs bathrooms
- 3 windows need be replaced
- Space needs to be created in the master bedroom for washer/dryer
- The house interior walls and garage door needs to be painted
