The National Zero Waste Council, a Canadian leadership initiative, brings together government, business and community change agents to advance waste prevention. With efforts traditionally focused on ‘end-of-pipe’ waste management, the National Zero Waste Council is pioneering a shift upstream - calling for national action to address waste generation. By reframing the conversation, the Council is positioning waste prevention and the circular economy as an opportunity for innovation, job creation, competitiveness, and cost saving. Founded by Metro Vancouver in collaboration with the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, the Council is uniting local governments, including five of Canada’s largest metropolitan regions - Metro Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, Halifax and Edmonton – with key stakeholders, influencing change on a national scale.
