The City of Montreal's initiative to create a circular economy roadmap is important in light of current waste management issues. The proposals put forward by Équiterre in the context of this consultation are primarily aimed at promoting the first strategies of the circular model, namely reduction at source, repair, reuse and the collaborative economy.
Quebec and its metropolis are not immune to the global crisis of resource waste. The Quebec economy is only 3.5% circular and nearly 271 million tons of materials are consumed each year, a level higher than the Canadian average. It is therefore urgent to find solutions to limit the overconsumption of these resources and to use them intelligently.
