The Canadian Battery Association started its Stewardship Program for Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick in 2015.  The Maritime Provinces represents a unique region where the majority of the distribution and recovery of lead-acid batteries occurs from Moncton, NB.  As such, the sales and recovery data for lead-acid batteries is skewed toward New Brunswick.  However, when the combined results from the Maritime Provinces are compared to the sales and recovery data for Canada, the results normalize on a per capita basis.
