Woodstove Exchange Program

The Wood Stove Exchange Program is a partnership between the Province of BC, the Lung Association of BC, the RDCK and the Town of Creston. This program provides a rebate for you to exchange your old (pre-1994), uncertified wood stove with a new, EPA- or CSA-certified wood, pellet, or gas heating appliance. 

The rebate value is $350. You will receive your rebate in the mail approximately six weeks following the date you submit your application. If you live in a rural area, you will receive the entire $350 rebate from the RDCK. If you live in the Town of Creston, you will receive $250 from the RDCK and $100 from the Town. 

Check out the Wood Stove Exchange Program brochure for more information. 

Find the application form here: Wood Stove Exchange Application Form.  Full, complete applications will be considered for grants on a first come first serve basis. Grant quantities are limited. 

Remember to include a photograph of your old wood stove installed before its removal and a photo of your new heating appliance once it is in place.
