Stoves and fireplaces

The acquisition of a transformation permit is required for the installation of a stove or fireplace using oil, propane, or natural gas (or any other non-solid combustible fuel), as well as for the installation of particulate-fuelled EPA- or CAN/CSA-B415.1-certified appliances.

Since the April 29th 2009 adoption by the Ville de Montréal of the Règlement relatif aux appareils à combustibles solides, the installation or replacement of any solid-fuel-burning appliance or fireplace is prohibited, with the exception of particulate-fuelled EPA- or CAN/CSA-B415.1-certified appliances. Is considered a solid fuel any solid combustible matter, such as wood. This by-law, however, does not apply to commercial cooking equipment such as wood stoves typically found in some pizzerias, for example.


As part of your permit request, bring the following documents to the Permits and inspections division service desk:

  • The location certificate (2 copies)
  • A draft of the project (2 copies)
  • A cost estimate
  • The contractor’s contact information, if applicable
  • Payment for the survey fees
  • A mandate from the owner is required if the permit is applied for by proxy

Fees for every other type of building
$8.90 per each $1000 in construction costs (minimum fee of $390)
