Woodstove Installations

The City of Nanaimo does not inspect the installation of woodstoves. We require that the woodstove be inspected by a WETT-certified inspector if the appliance is being installed as part of a new home, or renovation being done as part of an issued building permit.

A list of WETT-certified professionals is located on the WETT website.

If you'd like to install a woodstove yourself, be aware that woodstove installation is regulated by CAN/CSA-B365-01, Installation Code for Solid-Fuel-Burning Appliances and Equipment.
