Invite us to do a presentation or set up a booth:

It's our pleasure to present at schools, conferences, churches, work places and other community spaces on the topic of why we consider conventional trade to be unfair and how Fairtrade certification can help. Our presentations are positive, not graphic, suitable for all ages, and can be modified to suit your audience and available amount of time. We also can set up a booth at public spaces and hand out information about Fairtrade and free Fairtrade samples. These are voluntary services and we appreciate all opportunities to engage with groups.

Buy Fairtrade products and encourage your friends and family to do the same:

Become a Fairtrade School

At its core, the Fair Trade School Program is about educating Canada’s young leaders of tomorrow to understand the connection between our food supply and the people that grow our food on a daily basis. For teachers and students, fair trade provides a valuable framework to introduce these topics, and a chance to personally explore the impact to children and communities in the Global South.
