CONFERENCE ON CANADIAN STEWARDSHIP 

ÉEQ TO HOST THE 2017 EDITION IN MONTRÉAL 

Montréal, February 21, 2017 – Éco Entreprises Québec (ÉEQ) is proud to be hosting the 2017 Conference on Canadian Stewardship—a major biennial convention that attracts world-renowned speakers and delegates from across Canada, the United States and Europe. Following the 2015 edition in Banff, conference organizers chose Montréal to host the event, which coincides with the city’s 375th anniversary.

This year’s Conference on Canadian Stewardship will be held at Le Centre Sheraton Montréal Hotel from September 27 to 29 under the theme of extended producer responsibility and circular economy.

“The Conference on Canadian Stewardship is a key event for ÉEQ and other stakeholders concerned by extended producer responsibility in Canada and abroad,” stated Maryse Vermette, president and chief executive officer of Éco Entreprises Québec. “It was therefore only natural that we get involved in the organization of the conference in Montréal to promote Québec’s know-how and contribute to the event’s success.”  

Hundreds of delegates are expected to take part in the conference, which brings together business representatives, manufacturers, retailers, chambers of commerce and industry associations, federal, provincial, territorial and municipal governments as well as North American and European stewardship organizations.

To register, become a sponsor or exhibit at the Conference on Canadian Stewardship, go to the event website or contact us.

About Éco Entreprises Québec
Éco Entreprises Québec (ÉEQ) is the organization that develops the Schedule of Contributions and collects company contributions, which are then redistributed to finance municipal curbside recycling services in Quebec. ÉEQ also fosters innovation and the sharing of best practices to optimize the recyclable materials value chain. To do so, ÉEQ cooperates, on the one hand, with companies to reduce the quantities of materials at the source and encourage the use of recyclable materials, and, on the other, with municipalities to increase recycling and the economic value of recovered materials.

ÉEQ is a private non-profit organization created by companies that put containers, packaging and printed matter on Quebec’s market. The organization was accredited by RECYC-QUÉBEC in 2005 in accordance with the Environment Quality Act.
