What Was The Burn It Smart Program?
Burn it Smart (BiS) was a Canadian federal government-sponsored public information program intended to reduce wood smoke pollution. It operated from 2002 until the end of the decade. The most visible aspect of the campaign was public workshops that were delivered in many Canadian towns and cities. The delivery of the program was done by industry groups and/or other levels of government. Some provincial and private sector agencies continue to use the logo to deliver BiS workshops.
The Wood Heat Organization delivered a number of these workshops over the years. Click here to download a Wood Heat Organization report on a series of 11 BiS workshops delivered in Eastern Ontario in 2004.
