CATRA came together to promote the successes of the provincial tire stewardship organizations and together help make Canada a world leader in tire recycling.

CATRA's goals include:

  • Developing a statistical database which will help support responsible end-of-life tire management.
  • Maintaining an information sharing network among membership through annual meetings and regular conference calls.
  • Providing information and resources to support recycled rubber markets.
  • Developing, producing and distributing information about scrap tire management and helping promote best practices.
  • Acting as a resource to outside groups interested in end-of-life tire management, such as the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME), Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), or the Basel Convention.
  • Maintaining a clear and positive image for scrap tire recycling and its benefits to the environment
