This Week's Highlights

Conference on Canadian Stewardship, September 17-18, 2013, Toronto, ON

NOTE: This opportunity has expired or is an event which has already taken place.

The Conference on Canadian Stewardship brings together hundreds of delegates representing business, manufacturers, retailers, industry associations, municipalities, provincial and federal and territorial government representatives and stewardship programs from across North America and Europe.

The four previous biennial events (once every 2 years) were held in Toronto in 2005, Vancouver in 2007, in Montreal in 2009, and in Halifax in 2011. The fifth in this series will be held in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on September 17-18, 2013, at the Downtown Toronto Hilton Hotel.

These industry-led events have focused on themes that are essential to the creation, operation, and sustainability of efficient product stewardship programs in Canada. This years conference theme is “Producer Responsibility – Its Here to Stay” which will examine such topics such as governance of programs, the metrics of measuring program performance, innovation in product and packaging design, and how programs evolve to be more effective systems to benefit producers, consumers while complying with government regulations. Conference delegates will hear the views of opinion leaders and benefit from insights from consumer products company executives, hear from association representatives, senior producer industry experts, Deputy Ministers and Ministers of the Environment. For a listing of 2011 delegates, see Delegates on this website. Spirited discussions will deal with serious issues that face consumer product companies in North America, such as the cost of programs, controlling stewardship costs, fee structures, auditing of programs, reporting metrics and harmonizing program solutions.
