Ready to Report: Webinars and Resources

We are helping ensure stewards are ready to report their annual packaging and paper data in the WeRecycle Portal by the May 31 deadline.

Stewardship Ontario Reporting

Following consultation with stakeholders, a recommendation has been submitted to the Resource Productivity and Recovery Authority (RPRA) to proceed with the proposed Simplified Approach for fee setting. More information is available on the RPRA website. If RPRA accepts the proposal, most stewards will not need to report supply-to-market data to Stewardship Ontario. Watch for updates in the weeks ahead.

Material Categories

Stewards should note there are no changes to reporting categories for 2022 reports of 2021 sales data. It is expected there will be further consultation this year on aligning reporting categories with the Material Cost Differentiation (MCD) categories to further promote fairness and accuracy in fee setting. More information about the Disaggregation and Material Category (DMC) Review Project is available here.

Reporting Resources

Once you are logged in to the Portal, direct assistance from the National Steward Services team is available via online chat, the “get info” icons provide a direct link to relevant Guidebook information and the Reporting Hub is available for online guidance on collecting accurate material data.

The latest versions of the Guidebook for Stewards and Steward Lists, a Portal User Guide and other resources are available on the 2022 Reporting Resources page on the CSSA website.


There will be reporting webinars on February 23 and 24 – the first is designed for new reporters and the second for more experienced reporters. However, stewards may choose to attend either or both webinars. The one-hour sessions will be hosted on Zoom, beginning at 1 pm ET and will include plenty of time for questions and answers – see below for registration details or to submit your questions in advance. Webinar presentations will be available online following each webinar date.
