Why a fair trade town?
√ To ensure that our community is seen as a leader and to strengthen our respect for fair trade principles, including fair trade pricing, respect for labor standards, protection of the environment and fair trade where there is less actors;
√ To improve the lives of millions of farmers and workers in the South who are benefiting from fair trade;
√ To raise awareness and encourage local citizens to make ethical and sustainable choices;
√ To bring your community together around a common project;
The Fair Trade Programs are initiatives of Fairtrade Canada, managed in partnership with the Canadian Fair Trade Network (CFTN) and the Association québécoise du commerce équitable (AQCÉ).
