This event will explore the report, Learning from the Québec Experience: Transitioning to a Circular Economy, published by Québec Circulaire and Smart Prosperity Institute in May 2021.
Québec has established itself as a circular economy leader and we invite you to join our discussion on how the circular economy can be implemented in other jurisdictions.
A circular economy will allow us to move away from the “take, make, waste” one-way model of production and consumption, and towards a system that relies on building economic and natural capital, rather than depleting finite resources to create value. Ultimately, a circular economy will allow Canadian jurisdictions to combine economic regeneration, better societal outcomes and climate ambitions. Please join us for what is sure to be an interesting conversation!
