What We Do

RCO endeavours to be responsive to sector and market priorities in our activities, while maintaining core programming in keeping with our mandate and member needs. Some initiatives, therefore, may be different from year-to-year (such as Projects); while Programs continue to expand and grow over the decades.

  • Programs are the heart of our organization, through which we communicate with the public at large and promote our members’ achievements.

  • Some of our events are ongoing, and some are offered as one-time professional development sessions in response to member or stakeholder requests.

  • RCO provides independent analysis of all proposed Ontario policy and stewardship plans, and always advocate for the highest of environmental outcomes.

  • Our projects, carried out in collaboration with our members and other stakeholders, include research reports, programs, and the development of tools and best practices.
