Each year we dedicate the month of May to celebrate, advocate for, and educate on all things Fairtrade.
Many Canadian businesses are involved with buying, selling or distributing Fairtrade products, and they all play a role in empowering the 1.7 million Fairtrade farmers and workers in the Global South.
Campaigners across the country work tirelessly to grow the fair trade movement through public events, advocacy work, and Program designations.
Canadians are increasingly looking for products with strong commitments to social responsibility. Fairtrade Month is a great opportunity for businesses to champion your commitment to fairer trade practices, and for campaigners to help convince more people to shop with their values in mind.
We provide digital and physical assets, action guides, and event suggestions, to help spread the word about Fairtrade products and the real benefits that the system provides to producers. Check back here early next year to learn about our plans for Fairtrade Month in 2021.
