Plastic waste has captured the world’s attention, yet plastic production continues to grow as does the problem. All of the latest scientific research points to the same conclusion: we are at a critical crossroads in reducing plastic waste in the world’s oceans.

Time is short – Canada must take ambitious and concerted actions now to implement circular solutions and innovation in the design of plastic products if we are to solve the plastic problem.

Join us for a keynote conversation with Peter Schiefke, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Environment and Climate Change Canada, Dr. Chelsea Rochman, a leading scientist in marine ecology, and Horacio Barbeito, President & CEO of Walmart Canada, to explore how Canada can rise to the challenge of tackling plastic pollution in one generation.
