As of September 26, 2013 Edmonton officially became a Fair Trade Town.
Thanks to engaged and active Edmontonians, Edmonton become the second largest city in Canada to show its commitment to, and support for, sustainable & ethical trade relationships by becoming a Fairtrade Town.
We have documented growing availability and consumption of Fairtrade products and widespread community support. This support comes from schools, churches, businesses, and Edmonton's City Councillors.
We are excited to keep the movement growing by continuing to raise awareness and consumer engagement with Fair trade.
