Late last year, the Government of Alberta announced plans to advance engagement on Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) in early 2021. Further details on the planned engagement are anticipated shortly, as well as the release of a discussion paper on the topic.

In the meantime, there are many questions about what EPR could mean for Alberta. What role does EPR have in advancing a circular economy in the Province? The RCA and the Plastics Alliance of Alberta look to answer the critical questions with knowledge from EPR experts from across the country. The webinar will review the basics of EPR policy to establish a common understanding, share examples from successful implementation in other jurisdictions and discuss Alberta’s future EPR policies.

Confirmed speakers:

  • Jodi Tomchyshyn London (RCA) – EPR 101
  • Glenda Gies (Glenda Gies and Associates) – A History of EPR in Canada
  • Bob McDonald (BC Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy) – Implementing EPR in BC
  • David Lefebvre (Recycle BC) – How EPR for PPP works in BC
  • Alda Nicmans (BC Product Stewardship Council) – The EPR Experience for Municipalities

Please note that registration is for individuals, not groups, and each person attending the webinar/s must register separately.

A portion of the cost of the webinar goes directly to supporting the sustainability of the RCA and our goal to advance a circular economy in Alberta. Due to COVID-19 we were unable to host our largest revenue generating, and most popular event – our annual conference. We look to continue to advance education and engagement opportunities online until we can meet again.
