About the Schedule of Contributions: 

All companies that generate containers, packaging and printed matter (CP&PM) for Quebec’s market are required to pay an annual contribution under the Environment Quality Act. The Schedule of Contributions is a legal document published each year by the Government of Quebec that sets out the reporting terms for the obligation year.

Each Schedule of Contributions is presented to companies for consultations before going through an approval process by government authorities under the Act. These consultations are the official process leading up to the approval of the Schedule of Contributions by the Government.
