PSI Networking Call Series:

November - December 2007

Canadian Product Stewardship Systems


Overview: Canada’s product stewardship systems cover a wide range of products that work to assist and support jurisdictions in the development of product stewardship programs. These systems encompass different legislative and regulatory frameworks and encourage harmonization of approaches between regional and national jurisdictions. In this discussion, we will explore different types of product stewardship systems, from weak models in early Canadian programs to full producer responsibility systems. We will follow the progression of programs in British Columbia and other provinces. We will discuss ideal product stewardship systems and how they can apply to our current systems in order to achieve greater efficiency and promote more responsibility among actors.
