Provide your feedback on CIF’s Windup Plan Amendment Proposal

Between October 4, 2022, and November 4, 2022, the Continuous Improvement Fund (CIF) and the Resource Productivity and Recovery Authority (RPRA or the Authority) will jointly consult on CIF’s Windup Plan (WUP) Amendment Proposal.

The proposal outlines details for an early windup of CIF at the end of 2022 instead of 2023 and the transfer of its resources and assets, including approximately $9.64M in surplus funds currently designated for disbursement to individual municipalities, recycling associations and First Nations communities, to the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO).

AMO is proposing to use CIF surplus funds to continue some of the current activities undertaken by CIF and otherwise use the funds to continue supporting municipalities, recycling associations, and First Nations communities in the transition to Ontario’s extended producer responsibility framework, as well as post-transition support.

More information on the CIF WUP Amendment Proposal can be found here or by visiting CIF’s website.
