An Overview of the Single-use Plastics Prohibition Regulations

With the Canadian Government’s Single-use Plastics Prohibition underway, and the ban on the sale of certain single-use plastics starting in December 2023, Environment and Climate Change Canada will join us to discuss tactics to enable businesses like yours to move away from the use and distribution of single-use plastic takeaway items such as straws, eating utensils, shopping bags, and polystyrene foam and black plastic foodservice ware like containers, cups, plates, bowls and boxes.

Webinar attendees will:

  • Learn the fine details of the Single-use Plastics Prohibition Regulations, including the targeted items and implementation timelines
  • Get a sense of how the prohibition will impact you
  • Become aware of available information and resources to help you prepare for compliance
  • Get insight on the federal government’s approach to enforcement
  • Discuss approaches to selecting alternatives, with a focus on reuse options
