Ban on single-use plastic bags

The Canadian government has announced the prohibition of numerous single-use plastics under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act by the end of 2025. As of 2022, certain phases of this law are already in effect. Learn more in this article to be prepared for these changes.

 

What plastics will be banned?

  • Shopping bags
  • Utensils
  • Food containers made from “problematic plastics”
  • Straws

Microplastic pollution poses an ecological danger, causing physical harm to certain animals and their habitats.

 

When will the law be implemented?

For shopping bags, which are designed to carry purchased goods in retail stores and are typically provided to customers at checkout, the prohibition on manufacturing and import for sale in Canada has been in place since December 20, 2022. The ban on sales across Canada will be effective from December 20, 2023, while the prohibition on manufacturing, import, and export sales will be implemented in December 2025.

 

It is also worth noting that the City of Montreal has implemented a ban on the distribution of plastic shopping bags in retail stores and restaurants in all its boroughs. Plastic bags have already been prohibited since September 1, 2022, and single-use plastics will be banned starting from March 1, 2023. Businesses that do not comply with this regulation could face fines ranging from $400 to $2,000. In the case of repeat offenses, the fine could go up to $4,000.
