Connecting the Circular Economy Ecosystem
Circular Economy Urban Rural Test Bed
COIL is designed to develop, and scale circular economy innovations – and we want to work closely with entrepreneurs and businesses to prototype, test and prove circular business approaches in a real-world environment.
Centered in Guelph-Wellington, we’ve built a Circular Economy Urban Rural Test Bed connecting over 150 stakeholders from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors dedicated to building a more sustainable economy. Our Circular Innovation Hub team, housed at Innovation Guelph, is dedicated to helping businesses of all sizes make connections, find supports and successfully launch their own circular solutions.

ReSource Exchange Marketplace
A peel or pulp may have little value for one business and be the golden ingredient for another.
Many businesses recognize that the by-products or wastage created in their production processes could have value to someone else.
The ReSource Exchange is a free online marketplace that connects organizations to buy, sell or trade materials that would otherwise be end-of-life. Organizations from across the food and environment supply chain can join the marketplace, post the products they believe still have more to give, and get them to other businesses that can maximize the economic, environmental and social value of those resources.
The ReSource Exchange will officially launch in late spring 2021.

Circular Opportunity Innovation Network
Circular innovation is happening across many sectors and organizations in Canada. One group’s discoveries and methodologies shouldn’t be a best kept secret.
COIL will create a formal national network with other circular economy labs, incubators and accelerators across Canada to scale good ideas, share best practices and make it easy for any business or organization to join the circular economy movement.
The Circular Economy Innovation Network will launch in 2022.
