Circular Economy Leadership Coalition

The Circular Economy Leadership Coalition (CELC) is working to make Canada a world leader in building a sustainable, prosperous circular economy that benefits people and planet.

By providing thought leadership, technical expertise and a collaborative platform, we will accelerate the transition to a zero-waste, low-carbon circular economy.


Due to the impacts of COVID-19, the World Circular Economy Forum in Toronto is postponed to 2021. In the coming months, Canada and co-organizer Sitra will announce new dates for hosting the forum. Even though the conference is postponed, the work to advance the circular economy must continue. To help further such discussions, there will be opportunities for interested parties to connect virtually over the coming months.
