The Government of Ontario has identified the need to establish an online Registry to support the individual producer responsibility framework and the shift from a linear to a circular economy. The Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act, 2016 (RRCEA) requires the Registrar to “establish, maintain and operate the Registry." The Registry will collect data from producers and other regulated parties such as service producers as required by regulation.  It will also provide a platform for the Authority to report aggregated data on performance to the public, businesses and other stakeholders. 

The Authority is required to make public on the Registry its business plan, annual report, by-laws, the auditor’s report on its financial statements, and the operating agreement between the Ministry and the Authority. Click here to review these documents. The Authority is also required to post final fees, which will be posted here when they are available. The Registrar is required to post any orders issued and related compliance information.


Passenger and light truck, medium truck and off-the-road tires are the first materials to be designated under the Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act, 2016 (RRCEA). The Tires Regulation under the RRCEA establishes mandatory and enforceable tire collection and management targets for producers and  gives producers flexibility to meet their targets by either making their own arrangements for collecting and managing tires or by contracting a Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO) to work on their behalf.

The Authority will be responsible for the oversight, compliance and enforcement of the new regulatory requirements for tires. Tire producers and service providers (including collectors, haulers, processors and re-treaders) will be required to register with and report data through the Registry. The Tires Regulation incorporates the following documents by reference:
