The Wood Heat Organization was formed to support the public in the responsible use of wood energy in the home. We fulfill our mandate by providing reliable information, by conducting research into wood heating-related issues and by representing the public interest in discussions of policies that affect woodburning. The details of the mandate are found in our mission statement.

Scope of activities

Although The Wood Heat Organization is federally incorporated in Canada, and its government relations efforts are necessarily concentrated there, its mandate and activities are not confined to one country. Our objective is to provide useful information to anyone who uses wood for home heating, wherever in the world they live. In practical terms, however, we admit that this web site is largely North American-centric. In time, we hope to have more content contributors from other parts of the world.

How you can support our work

As a nonprofit corporation with a highly targeted mandate, we can do great things in support of responsible woodburning and is limited only by the ideas and funding it receives. Here is how you can help to support our work:

  • Send an article, news item or something else of interest to visitors to this site.
  • Make a donation of money to help us build and sustain this web site and our other programs.
  • Here is a list of the Friends of The Wood Heat Organization. We would like to see your name in that list.
