Health Products Stewardship Association

About Us

The Health Products Stewardship Association (HPSA) is a national industry stewardship organization representing companies that introduce medications and medical products with sharps into the marketplace. HPSA was formed to respond to government and environmental issues relating to the collection and safe disposal of unused or expired health products returned by the public in provinces having regulations requiring industry stewardship programs.

HPSA is federally registered as a Not-for-Profit Association, governed by a board of directors representing the industries since 1999.
