Thank you for celebrating Canada’s second annual Circular Economy Month campaign! The 2023 campaign was a huge national success, engaging Canadians on the circular economy through local events, contests, initiatives, landmark lightings, social media campaigns and educational resources. This page features social media posts and photos posted online to the program hashtag #CircularEconomyMonth or #WasteReductionWeek throughout the campaign.

Creating Awareness on Social Media

Organizations and government from coast to coast to coast shared educational and inspirational social media posts to engage Canadians on the circular economy.
