Canadian Battery Association News

The Canadian Battery Association (CBA) and the New Brunswick Deputy Minister of Environment signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to start a Stewardship Program for lead-acid batteries in 2014.

D'Arcy O'Neill of Crown Battery of Canada signed the MoU on behalf of the CBA bringing the total number of Provinces with an approved Stewardship Program to 3 - New Brunswick, Manitoba and BC.

The CBA's long-term goal is a National Stewardship Program from coast-to-coast-to-coast in both Official Languages.


The CBA's 2013 Annual Report in BC and 2013 Annual Report in MB can be downloaded here.


The website has over 730 Return Collection Facilities from coast to coast. The Return Collection Facilities will take vehicle and truck batteries from the consumer at no cost. The larger industrial lead-acid batteries should be returned to specially designed warehouses.
