State of Knowledge Report

The ultimate goal in identifying these ‘best practices’ is to identify key factors that have led to their success or any other lessons for other jurisdictions currently considering some form of EPR strategy.

The main findings in this report are as follows:

  • Despite the number of effective EPR strategies that have been identified, EPR strategies remain, for the most part, underutilized in Canadian municipalities;
  • Where EPR strategies are in place, greater effort should be made to monitor, analyze and report the results so that other Canadian municipalities may benefit from the experience, whether it is positive or negative.
