Alberta has a new extended producer responsibility framework for packaging and paper. A new regulation came into effect on November 30, 2022, with the transition to EPR launching in April 2025.
The anticipated timeline for Alberta’s transition to full extended producer responsibility is shown below.
To be exempt under the Regulation, you must be:
- A charitable organization as defined in the Charitable Fund-raising Act; or
- Any other producer with annual gross revenue in Alberta less than the threshold specified by the bylaws; or
- Any other producer with annual gross revenue in Alberta greater than the revenue threshold specified by the bylaws but who supply less than the designated material threshold amounts specified by the bylaws.
