The Conference on Canadian Stewardship brings together hundreds of delegates representing industry, government and stewardship programs from across North America and Europe. The three previous biennial events (once every 2 years) were held in Toronto in 2005, Vancouver in 2007, and in Montreal in 2009. The fourth in this series will be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada on September 20-21, 2011.

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 year’s conference theme is “Sustainable Stewardship” which will examine such topics as governance of programs, measuring program performance, and how programs evolve to create more effective systems. Conference delegates will hear the views of opinion leaders benefit from insights from consumer products company CEO’s, listened to Association Executives, Senior industry experts, Deputy Ministers and Ministers of the Environment. Spirited discussions have dealt with serious issues that face consumer product companies in Canada, such as the cost of programs, how costs can be controlled, fee structures, auditing, reporting and IT solutions.

In recent years, the stewardship landscape in Canada has changed substantially. A lot is happening. As the chart above shows, over 100 stewardship programs are now operating in Canada (click on box top right). To keep abreast of these developments and to see a revealing glimpse of future initiatives, join us in Halifax, September 20 – 21, 2011. Where experience talks!
