Canada’s First Circular Economy Public Awareness Campaign
Stay tuned for website updates as we approach the campaign's 2023 launch in October!
Launched by Circular Innovation Council, Circular Economy Month is Canada’s first-ever public awareness campaign dedicated to educating and empowering Canadians to support an economy that delivers on the most important values of Canadians: protecting the planet and prioritizing people. Circular Economy Month raises awareness about the benefits of the circular economy and celebrates circular innovations. During October, we invited Canadians to learn about the circular economy, celebrate our individual and collective efforts, embrace circular solutions, and encourage others to take action.
For decades, Circular Innovation Council has engaged Canadians from coast to coast to coast to better understand the issues of waste and the opportunities they have to accelerate our transition to a circular economy.
How will you get involved this Autumn 2023 for the second year of Circular Economy Month?
Canada Minister of Environment and Climate Change, Steven Guilbeault, supports and declares the month of October as Circular Economy Month in Canada:
The third week of October continues as Waste Reduction Week in Canada, upholding tradition of focusing on our daily themes related to specific waste streams and the waste reduction component of a circular economy. The remainder of the month will focus on introducing the concept of circular economy and amplifying its broader social, environmental, and economic benefits, communicating a different theme each week.

The circular economy goes far beyond finding a recycling solution at end-of-life. Circularity incorporates better design that consumes less raw material during production, maximizes value during use, and improves products and services that are intended to eliminate wastes.
How can Canadians advance our circular economy? Purchase smartly designed products meant to be reused, refurbished, and dismantled. Support companies that will lease or rent their products and offer to take them back for recycling after use.
