The 2013 Conference on Canadian Stewardship will take place on September 17-18, 2013 in Toronto, and will 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.
Held every two years in different cities around Canada, this year’s event—the fifth such event—will be held in Toronto at the Downtown Toronto Hilton Hotel.
While 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 “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.
