World Circular Economy Forum 2021

WCEF2021 – It’s time to change the game

Canada is proud to have hosted the 2021 edition of the landmark circular economy event of the year, the World Circular Economy Forum (WCEF), from September 13 to 15. WCEF2021 was the first time the Forum was hosted in North America. In 2020, as we adapted to the new COVID-19 reality, WCEF went virtual for the first time ever with WCEFonline. 2021’s main event was virtual once again.

WCEF2021 focused on the cross-cutting issues and topics that are central to economic recovery and the circular transition. The event brought together leaders, policymakers, experts and enthusiasts from around the world to focus on the key actions and systemic changes needed to create the conditions for long-term success on the path towards a thriving circular economy.
