Sioux Lookout chosen for Modern Wood Heating Pilot

“Ontario is committed to supporting northern, rural and Indigenous communities to fight climate change and improve their communities. The wood heat pilot programs are a great example of how Ontario’s carbon market proceeds are reducing greenhouse gas pollution, helping people save on heating costs, creating new jobs and supporting Ontario’s transition to a low-carbon economy.”
Chris Ballard – Minister of the Environment and Climate Change

“Ontario is taking action to support our forest product sector through development of these community-led modern wood heating pilots. A strong local market for wood heating fuels will support a diverse forest product sector, spur innovation, and keep investment here in Ontario. By increasing the use of modern wood heating technologies in these communities, the pilots will reduce greenhouse gas emissions, create jobs and encourage development of Ontario’s abundant forest resources.”
Nathalie Des Rosiers – Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry
