This publication series aims to provide a starting point in the journey towards a circular economy. These materials are intended to be used as a background resource and rich reference source for future efforts to engage Canadian firms and innovators in this transition, and to build sector-based roadmaps to a circular economy in Canada.

Twelve core strategies for rethinking resource consumption and optimizing the use of resources to transition to a circular economy are detailed in the Introduction to the series. Real-world practices supporting these strategies have been catalogued for seven sectors, each profiled in its own document:

  1. Minerals and Metals
  2. Electronics
  3. Agri-food
  4. Construction
  5. Plastics
  6. Bioeconomy
  7. Automotive Manufacturing

Please note that every month a new sector will be explored, in its own post.
