Fair Trade Campuses

All across Canada, students at universities, colleges and CEGEPs are doing great things to make their campuses more ethical.

A Fair Trade Campus is one that has made a commitment to supporting and educating about fair trade. Supporters ensure that as many Fairtrade products as possible, including food and drink, are available in as many places as possible in and around their campus. Increasing the use and sales of Fairtrade products can have a huge impact for producers and their communities.

They also raise awareness of fair trade with students and staff and the benefits that it brings to workers and farmers in the Global South.

If you are on Facebook, you can also join the Fair Trade Campus group.
