Sustaining Canada's Future.



While there is a great deal of research on certain aspects of aggregate extraction, such as its environmental and economic impact, its social status, and the need and nature of rehabilitation, its impact on active farming has seen little, if any, focused study. This project, in its third year, is designed to address this gap and to provide best management practices to both agricultural and aggregate operators, as well as local and provincial governments, about how these industries can better work together. This presentation will provide an overview of ongoing research activities and findings, as well as preliminary recommendations and best practices. 
This presentation assesses how Ontario's Waste Sectoral Regulatory Regime (WSRR) can be strengthened to actively enforce the "full" producer responsibility model blue box program at the municipal level in Ontario. The study's findings also informs research on enabling political agency of producers towards efficacy of the blue box program. 
PLACE is a national planning and geography conference that takes place every fall. Every year, a group of students organize PLACE, bringing together like-minded students, professionals, and others from across Canada to present research and discuss topics in geography and planning. 

This year, PLACE 21 was offered virtually, organized by VIU Masters student volunteers, and hosted by the Canadian Institue of Planners on their GoTo Webinar platfrom.
