CBA membership categories

Manufacturers Category

They manufacturer, distribute and wholesale consumer and industrial lead batteries across Canada.  The Manufacturers established the CBA in 1971 and they are the driving force behind the Association’s different programs.  Currently the primary focus of the Manufactures is to establish and national Environmental Stewardship program for the recycling of lead batteries.    

National Distributor/Smelter

These CBA members distribute and sell batteries across Canada or are manufacturers of products that contain lead-acid batteries or are the large smelters that recycle lead batteries.    

Provincial Distributor.

These members distribute and retail lead-acid batteries within a Province or they are an Association representing the Provincial brandowners of products (e.g., vehicles) that contain lead batteries.    

Associate Member

These members do not have any direct “stewardship” obligations but voluntarily support the CBA through membership.  Associate Members includes brandowners in non-regulated Provinces and carriers and recyclers of lead batteries.  

Dealer Category

The dealer typically sells a product (e.g., vehicles) that contains a lead battery and consequently meets the definition of “steward” in BC and Manitoba.  If the dealer sells a product that contains a lead battery that has been reported by a Provincial or National member, then membership in the CBA is not required.
