  • Packaging Regulations

    The Ontario government is expected to release draft regulations in October introducing an Extended Producer Responsibility Program. The newly-formed OPMA Packaging Round Table will meet in October to review and respond to the consultation on these regulations.In July, the OPMA formed a Packaging Round Table, consisting of members from across the supply chain and other industry associations. The group will meet several times each year to discuss any action items relating to packaging use and recycling in Ontario. The goals of this group are to act as an industry voice to the Ontario government on matters related to packaging, to support the industry in the implementation of new EPR regulations, and to communicate to the industry and consumers so we may all work towards a circular economy for packaging in Ontario.The work of the OPMA Round Table will not duplicate the CPMA Plastics Packaging Working Group. We encourage OPMA members to review the publically available resources on the CPMA website to help you make informed decisions.
