While the regulatory framework for each program varies from province to province, one common element is the existence of industry-run stewardship organizations in each province. The stewardship organizations are not-for-profit agencies established in response to each province’s regulatory framework. They represent steward interests and act on behalf of stewards in the development and implementation of the stewardship plans.
The PPP stewardship organizations currently supported by Circular Materials are:
- Recycle BC in BC;
- Multi-Material Stewardship Western (MMSW) in SK;
- Multi-Material Stewardship Manitoba (MMSM) in MB, and;
- Stewardship Ontario in ON.
