Revised HPSA Stewardship Program Plan
The Health Products Stewardship Association (HPSA), on behalf of Canada’s health products industries, manages the national Medications Return Programs (MRP) within the province of Manitoba. The HPSA Stewardship Plan in Manitoba was approved by Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship in 2011 and recognized the MRP as the official industry stewardship program for pharmaceuticals and natural health products.
We have submitted the 2017-2021 program plan and are presently awaiting feedback.
The 2017-2021 program plan is available here.
We look forward to the opportunity of continuing our commitment to provide access for responsible disposal of health products to Manitobans.
