Efficient e-waste management are crucial in successfully achieving sustainable urban growth universally. The upsurge in e-waste has resulted in countries, including Canada, adopting a wide array of policies that are associated with sustainable management. This research conducted a qualitative analysis of Canadian e-waste management policies to showcase the opportunities and limitations witnessed in the current system. This thesis examines and compares the effectiveness of electronic waste management strategies of Canada and Switzerland by using a comparative policy evaluation and measuring their efficiencies quantitatively through DEA analysis. To enhance Canada’s electronic waste management system, Switzerland is utilized as a comparison due to its robust legal framework in properly managing e-waste for decades. The policy considerations for this study are directed towards urban planners, policy-makers, and corporate strategists. These involve a mix of political, economic, social, and environmental planning tools on how to appropriately communicate and foster competent e-waste management in Canada.
