In Canada, Panasonic manages its commitment to responsible recycling through Industry funded independent non-profit organizations (IFOs). In the provinces with WEEE regulations Panasonic has been instrumental in the planning and development of these organization and to this day actively participates in the governance of these IFO's. With a total of over 2,200 collection sites across Canada they were able to divert 146,423MT of e-waste in 2014, thus bringing the cumulative electronic product collection volume, since the launch of these programs, to 658,819MT. Unlike the United States, Canada does not separate their recycling by manufacture as all e-waste is handled as a collective, so Panasonic specific collection volumes are not available.
