Kamloops, BC – City residents may be eligible to receive up to  $1,600 in rebates for upgrading their old, uncertified wood-burning appliance for a new, certified, low emission heating appliance.

Operating in partnership with the BC Lung Association and the BC Government, the Wood Stove & Fireplace Rebate Program (WSFRP) is offered in communities around the province, and designed to encourage British Columbians to exchange their old, smoky, wood-burning appliances for cleaner heating options, including heat pumps, natural gas, pellet stoves, and cleaner-burning wood stoves.
