Turning Point - the Circular Economy in Canada

A World Circular Economy Forum side event

The way our economies extract, use, then dispose of resources is putting pressure on our natural systems, communities, and public health. The circular economy presents a potential solution.

The Council of Canadian Academies (CCA) has released its latest report, Turning Point, requested by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), and informed by the Expert Panel on the Circular Economy in Canada, a multidisciplinary group of 16 experts from across Canada and abroad. The report identifies the opportunities and challenges for a circular economy in Canada, including the potential economic, environmental, and social impacts of a circular transition.

On December 3, 2021, ECCC, in partnership with the CCA, hosted a discussion of the Turning Point report as a World Circular Economy Forum (WCEF) side event. Members of the Expert Panel shared the study‚Äôs high-level findings and discussed key issues related to the transition to a circular economy in Canada.
