Fair Trade Campus Week

Fair Trade Campus Week is a fun-filled week bursting with activities where Campus life and businesses intersect to create tremendous educational and promotional opportunities for all. 

It is the opportunity to celebrate the fair trade movement and Fairtrade certified products in Campuses across Canada! Mark your calendar as in 2017 it falls the week of September 25-29! We work closely with all our partners to help supply ideas, creative collateral, artwork designs and more to help make Fair Trade Campus Week a success. 

New this year, don’t miss the World’s Largest Fair Trade Bake Sale, an exciting campaign lead by Campuses. For more details, visit the World's Largest Fair Trade Bake Sale Website.

There is an array of resources available to you!
