Toronto the first city in Canada to join Global Circular Economy Network!

Toronto is the first city in Canada to join the Circular Economy 100 (CE100) network, which focuses on reducing waste and getting the most value out of products and resources.

“We are proud to join this global network of government and corporate entities working to drive economic prosperity and improve the environment,” said Mayor John Tory. “Toronto remains committed to reaching its climate action goals, while creating a liveable and sustainable tomorrow.”

As part of the Long Term Waste Management Strategy, approved by Council in 2016, the City is working toward a goal of zero waste and developing a policy framework to make Toronto the first municipality in Ontario with a circular economy.

With its membership in the CE100, Toronto now joins leading governments transitioning toward a circular economy, including Brussels, Denmark, London and Phoenix.
