Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) is conducting a residential wood appliances emission factor study titled “Impact of Various Parameters on Wood Stove Emission Factors” (Study). The study started in December 2020 and will be completed by March 31, 2022.  ECCC has committed to providing a draft of the study to HPBAC once complete. The study will not include any policy recommendations but will be central to future dialogue on appropriate federal wood-burning regulations and carbon emission inventories. HPBAC will remain engaged with ECCC on an ongoing basis and update members regularly.

Further information will be provided once it is available in Winter/Spring 2022.
