Ecofees and the Pharmaceutical Industry

Managing ecofees is no easy task!

Do you comply
with the current regulations?


Environmental Compliance Is More Complex Than It Seems.

As an example, let's analyze a health product like a package of glucosamine ointment:

Each component of a pharmaceutical product may be subject to regulatory fees in each province or country where it is sold.

In Canada, you may need to report for each of the programs below:





Régime de compensation pour la collecte sélective

Éco Entreprises Québec (ÉEQ)


Blue Box

Resource Productivity & Recovery Authority (RPRA)

Manitoba, Saskatchewan, British Columbia and New Brunswick

Blue Box

Circular Materials (CM)

*The province of Ontario is in program transition from 2023-2025

Pharmaceutical companies in Nova Scotia must pay a fee for the Medication Disposal Program to the Pharmacy Association of Nova Scotia (PANS). However, no reporting is required.
