Zero Waste Canada collects the experiences, challenges and solutions of
Citizens, Businesses and Communities and tells the story
of how Canada can get to authentic Zero Waste.


As the authentic Zero Waste movement grows, several national Zero Waste organizations are carrying the Zero Waste banner. For Zero Waste Canada, because we are so large geographically, it is important to make sure we come together collaboratively so each province and territory have an equal voice and representation. From each provincial or territorial Zero Waste chapter, regional, municipal, and First Nations communities can come together to create their provincial or territorial authentic Zero Waste organization that fits in with Zero Waste Canada. As Zero Waste Canada is the Canadian affiliate to Zero Waste International Alliance, we can create a Made in Canada organization together. The authentic Zero Waste movement is growing. Please contact us if you would like to be part of the authentic Zero Waste solution.
