Wood Burning

The burning of firewood represents approximately 47.5% of the total emission of fine particles in the air, and the resulting smoke can have adverse effects on the health of citizens, as it consists of nearly 100 various toxic substances. Concerned with providing a healthy environment for residents, the City of Dorval has adopted regulations with respect to solid-fuel burning heating appliances and fireplaces.

In fact, it is prohibited to replace or install solid-fuel burning heating appliances unless they are certified to have atmospheric emission levels equal to or less than 2.5 grams/hour of fine particles. Also:

  • Starting December 1, 2018, it will be prohibited to use any solid-fuel burning appliances or fireplaces unless they emit 2.5 grams/hour of fine particles or less, or they are certified according to CSA (Canada) or EPA (US) standards.
  • Citizens have three years to either change their appliances or have them meet current standards. Until then, it is prohibited to make use of their appliances or fireplaces during a smog warning and to use the following materials as fuel in a wood-burning appliance: wet or unseasoned wood, waste, treated or painted wood, plastic and rubber products, used oil, paints and solvents, charcoal, glossy or coloured paper, and particle boards.
  • Citizens who choose not to replace their appliance or to bring it up to code before December 1, 2018 will not be permitted to use it, except in the case of a power outage lasting more than three hours.
