If you heat your home with a woodstove, you may also be eligible for the 2019 Woodstove Replacement Program. (Note: All 2019 woodstove replacement rebates have now been distributed. Please check back in 2020 for rebates for woodstove replacements occurring on or after February 1, 2020).
Smoke Pollution and Your Health
Scientific evidence indicates a strong link between air pollution levels and impacts on human health. Burning yard waste in your backyard, or improperly using a woodstove for home heating, spread invisible, toxic chemicals throughout the region. These chemicals include dioxins, furans, arsenic, mercury, PCBs, lead, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, sulphur oxides, hydrochloric acid, and fine particular matter (PM2.5).
