RCA Announces 2023 Conference in Lake Louise!

The Recycling Council of Alberta is excited to announce our Circular Economy Conference, October 18th to 20th, 2023, at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. The theme There and Back Again: The Journey to Circularity is based on the Lord of the Rings.

For three days, attendees will hear from local, national and international experts, thought leaders and community innovators, attend thought-provoking sessions, network and exchange ideas and perspectives, and have a whole lot of fun doing it. Register today, and get ready for the perfect mix of business, inspiration, actionable information and fun!

RCA conference topics will include dialogue around the circular economy and recycling. We will engage leading presenters on key topics, including extended producer responsibility (EPR), circular economy, packaging, organics, chemical recycling, innovation in First Nations communities, measurement and accountability. The RCA works hard to feature topics and speakers who are informative and relevant while also providing inspiration to move the needle on key issues.

We are very excited to announce that this year’s keynote speaker is Jenn Harper, founder of Cheekbone Beauty, an Indigenous-owned and founded cosmetics company. Cheekbone’s aim is to make a difference in the lives of Indigenous youth through donations that support educational opportunities for them, and to create a space in the beauty industry where everyone, including Indigenous people, feel represented and seen. The brand is known for its sustainable and high quality colour cosmetics that are clean, vegan and cruelty free. Keeping in line with her Anishinaabe roots, the first line Jenn launched was the SUSTAIN in 2020, a low-waste line of lipsticks, made for everyone that loves our planet.

Our conference website is now live at www.conference.recycle.ab.ca – you will find a preliminary program and the opportunity to register. There are also a wide variety of sponsorship options and the opportunity to host a tradeshow exhibit as part of the event.
