Announcement: Discover the members of the Peer-to-Peer Network
On June 15, 2021, the CCRI announced the 15 local governments and communities selected to participate in their new Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Network. Located from Whitehorse, Yukon, to St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, members of this Network will have direct access to leading experts in the field and connect with local governments and communities across the country, develop their own circular economy roadmaps for their local regions, and much more.
Local communities have a unique role to play in accelerating the transition to a circular economy. Cities and regions are leading the way in this transition, acting as hubs for innovation and culture, and engines of economic activity.
The Circular Cities & Regions Initiative (CCRI) – a one-year pilot created and developed by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ Green Municipal Fund, the National Zero Waste Council, the Recycling Council of Alberta and RECYC-QUÉBEC – will advance circular economy knowledge sharing and capacity building in Canadian cities and communities of all sizes.
Through direct support and guidance locally focused to their needs, and access to a peer network that will encourage and foster collaboration amongst participants, those taking part in CCRI will:
- learn how to get started and to embed circular economy approaches in their respective communities;
- access one-on-one mentoring, support and advice in the development of their local circular economy roadmap;
- identify benefits to the members of their communities, challenges to overcome and opportunities during this transition;
- collect lessons learned and best practices to support the future transition of other cities and regions to a circular economy;
- and more.

The CCRI is hosting a series of public knowledge-sharing webinars exploring innovative circular city approaches from across Canada and globally. Webinars are delivered in English with French simultaneous interpretation. Visit Canadiancircularcities.ca for more information.
