Reducing emissions resulting from wood burning appliances has been identified as a priority goal in the BVLD Airshed Management Plan released on June 30, 2004.1 Delivery of a wood stove exchange program was recommended as a key strategy for meeting this goal, together with public education programs and local by-laws. The two main objectives of a wood stove exchange program are: To provide meaningful incentives to homeowners to trade in conventional, inefficient, highly polluting wood stoves for cleaner and safer heating systems, including certified high efficiency wood stoves and pellet stoves. To raise awareness within the communities and educate homeowners about wood stove emissions and proper wood stove operation.In February of 2004, Footprint Environmental Strategies submitted a report called “Time to BurnSmarter: Feasibility Analysis and Workplan for a 2004 BVLD Woodstove Exchange Program” to the Ministry of Water, Land, and Air Protection (WLAP). Subsequently, a request for proposals was issued by WLA
