The National Zero Waste Council, an initiative of Metro Vancouver, is leading Canada's transition to a circular economy by bringing together governments, businesses and NGOs to advance a waste prevention agenda that maximizes economic opportunities for the benefit of all Canadians. By taking action on the factors that drive waste generation, the Council is supporting a high quality of life, environmental sustainability and economic prosperity while consuming fewer resources and less energy.

FCM has been the national voice of municipal government since 1901. Our members include more than 2,000 municipalities of all sizes, from Canada's cities and rural communities, to northern communities and 20 provincial and territorial municipal associations. Together we represent more than 90 percent of all Canadians from coast to coast to coast. FCM brings local priorities to the national agenda, and we’ve secured historic federal investments in infrastructure, housing, rural broadband and more. Our national and international programs help build local capacity on everything from climate innovation and asset management to gender parity and reconciliation.
