Workshop on Economic Freedom and the Circular Economy

Defining the Role of Competition in Extended Producer Responsibility

Policymakers across Canada are embracing the concept of the circular economy and using extended producer responsibility (EPR) policies to move toward it.

As a performance-based market instrument, EPR relies on free and competitive markets. But building regulatory frameworks that capture this reality continues to be an ongoing challenge in Canada.
That’s where you come in. The Ontario Waste Management Association is bringing together producers, the resource-recovery sector and regulators for a special workshop this November to discuss the role that competition plays in Canada’s growing circular economy.

Don’t miss the chance to be a part of this incredibly important conversation. Mark down Nov. 8, 2016, on your calendar today and plan to attend the OWMA’s:

Workshop on Economic Freedom and the Circular Economy at the Holiday Inn Toronto Airport Hotel, 970 Dixon Road, Toronto. To register now, click here.

At this informative workshop, you’ll have the exclusive opportunity to hear from:

  • Sally Van Siclen, author of the chapter on competition in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development’s Extended Producer Responsibility, Updated Guidance document;
  • Catherine Hariton, a competition law officer at the Competition Bureau of Canada’s Advocacy and Economic Analysis Directorate, who will discuss the role of competition in the Canadian economy and how the federal Competition Act applies to producers and waste management organizations carrying out their responsibilities under EPR laws, and,
  • Derek W. Moore, an attorney advisor in the Office of Policy Planning at the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, who will discuss the various provisions of American anti-trust law that apply to market participants within EPR systems.

We have also invited some special guests from B.C.’s Ministry of the Environment and Ontario’s Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change.
