The Canadian National Exhibition is the largest annual fair in the country, averaging 1.3 million visitors every year. The event takes place each summer at Exhibition Place in Toronto.
As a program of Exhibition Place, the CNE is committed to protecting and sustaining the environment. Its grounds are home to the first urban wind turbine in North America and the Hydrogen Fuel Cell Demonstration Project, a partnership with Hydrogenics Corporation. Moreover, through its extensive waste diversion program, the CNE recycles more than 40% of its overall waste including: 5,307 tons of solid waste, 67 tons of cardboard, 18 tons of wood, 1,921 tons of hay and manure, 14.7 tons of grease, 15 tons of organics, 10 tons of hand towels and 25 tons of clean fill. Each year, one day of the CNE is designated as Green Day. Showcasing the latest in environmental technology, CNE Green Day incorporates community activities and initiatives that illustrate how we can work to protect and sustain our planet. The 2008 CNE takes place August 15-September 1 at the Exhibition Place grounds.
