In partnership with local non-profits and social enterprises, we're exploring options to provide free reusable shopping bags to residents in need.
We're developing the Shopping Bag By-law Support Plan before Vancouver’s ban on plastic shopping bags and fees for paper bags and new reusable bags begin January 1, 2022.
The purpose of the support plan is to minimize potential impacts that the plastic bag ban and required fees on paper and new reusable bags may have on residents with low incomes or people experiencing homelessness.
Development of the Shopping Bag By-law Support Plan is ongoing. Sign up for updates
