Wood Stove Exchange Program

The Wood Stove Exchange Program was established with the intent to provide incentive for replacing old wood stoves (high particulate emissions) with more efficient, low emissions models or alternatives through rebates.  This program is funded by the BC Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy with rebate funding top-ups from the qathet Regional District and overseen by the BC Lung Association.

Check out the application here for more information and visit the qathet Regional District webpage for further details.
