With over 85 different EPR programs, Canada has a very well developed EPR and circular economy landscape. Ontario’s Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act has ushered in a new era of producer responsibility regulations in Canada, the first province to introduce a competitive market of PROs, or Producer Responsibility Organizations. In addition to Ontario’s requirements, producers may find it difficult to fulfill compliance with so many different regulatory schemes per product per Province.
