Coha Nova Scotia Chapter

About Us

The Canadian Oil Heat Association was established in 1983 by a group of fuel oil dealers who knew the value of working collectively on matters that affected the oilheat industry. Since then, COHA has grown into a national body boasting a membership of over 400 oilheat professionals, including fuel oil dealers, major oil companies, manufacturers, wholesalers, contractors, trainers, and other professionals.

A voluntary membership organization, COHA serves as the industry's voice to provincial and federal regulators and government decision-makers on matters of policy, safety and certification. COHA works with government and other stakeholders to foster a sustainable business environment for its members.

As a national organization, COHA is comprised of provincial Chapters in Ontario, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland & Labrador focusing on provincial regulations, training and promotion activities.

In addition to the use of the association's dedicated staff and other technical resources, COHA relies on its member volunteers serving on various committees and ad hoc groups, bringing first-hand industry knowledge and experience to the table when develo9pment new strategies and solutions.

Home Heating Oil Retail Sector in Nova Scotia
The demand for home heating oil is generated in all communities across the province, from the remote rural communities to the core urban areas. To serve this market there are currently 85+ home heating oil retailers with approximately 150 locations in Nova Scotia. Small independent companies operate the majority of these locations.

We provide local employment all over the province, contribute to provincial GDP both directly and indirectly, and because many are locally owned, the economic benefits remain in the communities where they live, work and play. As responsible corporate citizens, these firms also contribute to many local charities and community activities.
