Report on Plastics Placed on Market

The Canadian Government has unveiled its new Federal Plastics Registry, mandating plastic producers to report on the quantity and type of plastic they introduce into the Canadian market, aiming to track plastic throughout its lifecycle in the economy, from production to disposal. This initiative aligns with Canada’s zero plastic waste agenda, addressing the nation’s significant plastic waste issue, with only 9% of plastic currently recycled annually. Reporting requirements will be phased in starting in September 2025, covering various plastic categories and waste management stages, with exemptions for small producers placing minimal plastic on the market. Minister of Environment and Climate Change Steven Guilbeault emphasized the registry’s role in informing future actions and measuring progress toward reducing plastic waste and pollution, underscoring the government’s commitment to environmental stewardship.
