Get Informed about Alberta’s EPR Engagement and Connect with EPR Experts – March 30 Webinar

Alberta is prioritizing a circular economy with the advancement of extended producer responsibility (EPR) policy for Packaging, Paper Products, Single-Use Plastics, as well as Hazardous and Special Products. Stakeholder engagement is underway until the end of April and an EPR discussion paper has been released by Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP). During a webinar on March 30 at 10:00 am (Mountain Time), Heather von Hauff, the Executive Director of Water and Waste Policy for AEP, will lead participants through the discussion paper. There will be a chance to engage with Heather on the paper topics including responsibilities, oversight, targets, definitions and more. Following Heather’s presentation, a panel of EPR experts will join in to answer questions. The panel includes Kelsey Morden, Manager of Sustainability Programs at the Retail Council of Canada; Alda Nicmans, Executive Director of the BC Product Stewardship Council; and Jodi Tomchyshyn London, the President of the RCA.

This is the first webinar in a series that the RCA will host over the course of the engagement process. These webinars will help participants navigate what EPR can mean for their organizations and answer common questions about EPR systems and outcomes.
