December 27, 2012, Quebec, QC - The preliminary agenda has been set for the Canadian Wood Pellet Heating Conference, to be held February 27 through March 1 in historic Quebec City.

The Canadian Wood Pellet Heating Conference
is the first event strictly dedicated to wood pellet heating in Canada.
Organized by the Wood Pellet Association of Canada and the Quebec Wood Export
Bureau, this event will allow visitors to learn, share and discuss issues and

aspects, heating system installation and innovations, the regulatory
framework, the distribution network, and more.

The target audience includes professionals in the wood pellet sector, marketers, HPAC professionals and installers wanting to know more, home builders and architects, progressive home owners, insurance providers, and key sectors that would benefit from pellet heating economics, such as agriculture, greenhouses and more.

The event kicks off Wednesday, February 27th with an afternoon tour of pellet heating in action featuring some of the country's most advanced systems. This is followed a two day conference and trade show at the Quebec Hilton. Topics include:
