CIRANO and the Ministry of Environment and Fight Against Climate Change, in collaboration with the I-EDDEC Dialogue & Transfert, the Chair of Energy Sector Management at HEC Montréal, Université Laval and Polytechnique Montréal, organized the Workshop on Circular Economy. The objective of the event was to validate with experts and stakeholders the interests and priorities for the deployment of the circular economy in Quebec in order to include them in the Government Sustainable Development Strategy 2022-2027.
The workshop included a scoping lecture, which prepared participants for their contribution to the one of the three 2-hour roundtables. The workshop brought together stakeholders from different levels of decision making from academia, government, the private sector and the community. In light of the pandemic, the scoping conference took place on Tuesday, August 4 and the roundtables took place on August 5 (9:00-11:00 am) and August 6 (9:00-11:00 am / 1:00-3:00 pm).
