Engagement Webinar: Transitioning MHSW to Full Producer Responsibility

The Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks and OFNTSC invite you to attend an information and engagement session regarding the transition of the waste diversion program for Municipal Hazardous or Special Waste (MHSW) to full producer responsibility. Your input will be key to ensuring that the transitioned MHSW program is effective, efficient and accessible for all.

The meeting will be held virtually over Skype for Business (the link to join the meeting on August 11th is below – “Join Skype Meeting”). If you don’t have Skype for Business on your computer, or don’t have a Skype for Business account, you can use Skype Meetings App or Skype for Business Web App to join from your browser. Please take a look at this link for help to get you get started.

An agenda and presentation will be provided to lead discussions.

Meeting Guidelines

  • Test all technology (including microphones, Wi-Fi, and the Skype platform) before the meeting and resolve any technical issues early to avoid joining late. We encourage you to join 15 minutes before the scheduled meeting time to test all technology.
  • When using laptop audio, ensure a headset is used rather than the laptop’s built-in microphone to reduce background noise, such as distracting echoes.
  • Keep your microphones turned off/on mute when not talking to prevent transmitting background noise.
  • Please announce your name and organization when speaking, or when submitting a written comment, so all participants can follow the conversation with ease.
  • Don’t interrupt other people when they’re speaking (or attempt to speak over them).

These considerations can go a long way in ensuring all participants are accommodated during the webinar.

Transitioning the MHSW program to producer responsibility will be a multi-stage process that will involve many opportunities for input. The next stage in this transition process is the development of a new regulation under the Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act. A proposed MHSW regulation will be released in fall 2020 for public consultation on the Environmental Registry, with the goal of finalizing the regulation early in 2021.
