Circular Innovation Council partners with Peel Region to expand its community-based circular Hub

For immediate release

Virtual Share, Reuse, Repair Hub expands to a new community and grows its resource and business directory.

April 22, 2024 (BRAMPTON): Circular Innovation Council, a national not-for-profit organization focused on accelerating Canada’s transition toward a circular economy, has expanded its virtual community hub in partnership with Peel Region.

Initially launched by Circular Innovation Council in 2022 with support from York Region’s Circular Economy Initiatives Fund, the Share, Reuse, Repair Hub is a community-based virtual resource that provides easy access to share, reuse, repair services in the community. It also offers a platform for local businesses to promote their contribution to the circular economy.

The Hub includes:

  • A directory of 85+ businesses, resources, and events specific to Peel Region and the municipalities of Brampton, Caledon, and Mississauga.
  • A new map that allows users to find businesses based on location and categories.
  • Educational information about how different businesses support the circular economy.
  • Listing of local events like repair cafes, swaps, curbside giveaways, and collection drives.
  • 30+ informative virtual resources.
  • Promotional opportunities for local businesses to showcase their sustainable efforts to the local community.


Businesses and organizations that are not currently listed in the directory and want to get involved are encouraged to reach out to Circular Innovation Council by emailing [email protected] or submit a request form to be added to the Hub.

“We are pleased to be expanding our Share, Reuse, Repair Hub in collaboration with municipalities like Peel Region who are dedicated to stimulating their local circular economies,” says Jo-Anne St. Godard, Executive Director of Circular Innovation Council. “Share, reuse, and repair are simple – yet essential actions we can easily incorporate into our lives to extend the life of products we use every day. Connecting our communities with the necessary information to seek options that promote share, reuse, repair is critical for driving behaviour change away from our current take-make-waste mindset. We are looking forward to bringing this important resource to additional communities across Canada.”

“We are very excited about our partnership with the Circular Innovation Council’s Share, Reuse, Repair Hub,” says Norman Lee, Director, Waste Management, Peel Region. “Peel is committed to minimizing the impacts of waste in our community. This partnership will lower waste generation and encourage our residents to use the repair, reuse and share services in our community. This in turn will help support our long-term goal of 75% waste diversion from landfills by 2034.”
