The Council of Canadian Academies (CCA) will soon release its latest report, Turning Point, 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. Members of the Expert Panel will share the study’s high-level findings and discuss key issues related to the transition to a circular economy in Canada.

You are invited to attend a public briefing and discussion on the Turning Point report, to learn more about the key actions needed to create the conditions for long-term success on the path towards a thriving circular economy. This event will be hosted by Environment and Climate Change Canada, in partnership with the CCA, as a World Circular Economy Forum (WCEF) side event.
