3.0 National material list

Below please find the national material list. The tables below provide stewards with a list of the material categories for which they need to report in each province. A green check mark indicates that that material is obligated in that province and should be reported. Please consult

the “Examples & Reporting Tips” for further guidance on how to report each material.  Please note that the examples provided are for illustrative purposes only and should not be used to definitively establish the correct reporting category. If you have questions about the material list, please contact National Steward Services at 1-888-980-9549 or by email at stewards@cssalliance.ca.

A  downloadable  PDF  of  the  national  material  list  and  the province-specific material  lists  are  also  available. Please visit http://guidebook.cssalliance.ca/ where these can be downloaded.
