$250 Wood Stove Exchange Rebate

Metro Vancouver residents are eligible to receive a $250 rebate for trading in their old uncertified wood burning appliance for a new low emission appliance.

For more details on which low emission appliances qualify as a replacement unit, please see the information listed under the heading of “Shop for a new low emission appliance”.

Please note that rebate funding is limited and will be issued to qualifying residents on a first come, first served basis. At this time there are approximately 70 rebates available.

How To Participate


The following appliances qualify for an exchange under this program:

  • A free-standing non-EPA certified “stove”. A “homemade” or “barrel” stove,
  • A so-called “airtight” non-EPA certified fireplace insert, or tube type heat exchanger with a face plate and door (like the ‘Free Heat Machine’ or Welenco) that is currently installed in an open hearth fireplace,
  • A non-EPA certified “wood furnace” (ducted, forced air, home heating appliance) – may only be replaced by an EPA certified wood furnace or pellet furnace,
  • A wood-burning cook stove,
  • An open hearth fireplace (must receive prior approval from Program Coordinator).


When you are ready to shop for your new low-emission appliance, visit a participating retailer (see link to list below) to arrange purchase.  The following NEW units qualify as replacement appliances under this program:

  • An EPA certified wood stove, a pellet stove, or a high efficiency gas stove/fireplace,
  • An EPA certified wood insert, a pellet insert, electric insert or a high efficiency gas insert,
  • An EPA certified factory-built fireplace – may only be accepted if it is replacing a NON EPA certified WOOD STOVE OR NON EPA certified WOOD INSERT (not an existing factory built fireplace).


  • Contact your municipality about obtaining a building permit for the installation of your new appliance.
  • Contact your insurance company to find out if there are any savings associated with the exchange of your old appliance. Also, you may need to confirm if your insurance company imposes any additional requirements, such as an inspection by a WETT (Wood Energy Technical Training) certified technician, for the installation of the new appliance.


Your retailer will help you fill out the necessary paperwork and also with disabling & recycling your old wood appliance. If preferred, residents can disable and recycle their old appliance on their own, however, prior to beginning these steps you must contact the Program Coordinator or your retailer for important information on the proper procedure.


The retailer will help you ensure all the required paperwork and documentation is forwarded to Metro Vancouver for verification and processing. Please note that it may take up to 8 weeks, once the completed paperwork has been submitted, before you receive the rebate cheque via Canada Post.

What is an EnerChoice fireplace?

All fireplaces sold in Canada have an EnerGuide®* label that tells you how energy efficient it is. There is no ENERGY STAR® rating for fireplaces, so in BC, manufacturers developed the EnerChoice designation to identify the most efficient models.

To qualify for EnerChoice status, hearths must have minimum fireplace efficiency (FE) ratings of:

  • 62.4% or higher for fireplaces
  • 61% or higher for inserts
  • 66% or higher for free­standing stoves

*EnerGuide is an official mark of Natural Resources Canada.

How FortisBC eligible EnerChoice fireplaces save more energy

By using an energy-efficient fireplace to heat just the area you’re in, you can turn down the heating in the rest of the house, and reduce energy costs.

Most energy-efficient modulating fireplaces have automatic thermostat control, which turns down the heat produced once the desired temperature is reached. This saves energy while keeping the room from getting too hot and uncomfortable.

To maximize energy savings, turn off the fireplace when you leave the room, as even efficient modulating fireplaces continue using energy while you’re away.
