Please note re Stewardship Ontario reporting:

1)     At the time this Guidebook was being finalized, Stewardship Ontario was consulting with stewards on a Simplified Approach that would eliminate the need for stewards to report 2021 supply-to-market data to Stewardship Ontario. 

2)    Guidance provided in this Guidebook for Stewardship Ontario reporting applies only to the current regulatory requirements and not the Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act and the transition under that legislation which will begin in 2023.
