Supporting International Action to Combat Plastic Pollution

Since 2015, Canada has demonstrated international leadership in combatting plastic pollution. We launched the Oceans Plastics Charter which has been endorsed by 27 governments and over 70 businesses and organizations. We also invested $100 million to help developing countries prevent plastic waste from polluting our oceans and shorelines.

A re-elected Liberal government will:

  • Accelerate the global shift to a circular economy as host of this year’s World Circular Economy Forum.
  • Build on the Ocean Plastics Charter by working with leading countries on the development of a new global agreement on plastics.
