29 September - 1 October 2020 Toronto, Ontario, Canada
World Circular Economy Forum 2020 [Postponed]

In December 2019, Canada announced that it would host the World Circular Economy Forum 2020, co-organized by the Government of Canada and the Finnish innovation fund Sitra. The Forum was to be held in Toronto, Ontario, from 29 September to 1 October 2020.

On 5 May 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of Canada announced that the World Circular Economy Forum would be postponed to 2021. In the coming months, Canada and co-organizer Sitra will announce new dates for hosting the forum.

The World Circular Economy Forum is a global event that brings together leaders, businesses, policymakers, and experts to present solutions for a circular economy. The 2020 forum will provide a global platform for national and international discussions on new business models that use our natural resources more efficiently, minimize waste and pollution, and accelerate the transition to a clean economy. The event will be an opportunity for businesses, research organizations, and academia to come together to showcase their technologies, find new markets, and meet world-class innovators and investors.
