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. For any inquiries in regards to this initiative and the details found below, contact us at action@fairtrade.ca.

Fairtrade product donation

Fair Trade Campus Week helps facilitate a dialogue between suppliers and campuses on the subject of new products.

During the summer, we reach out to companies willing to donate Fairtrade products and to campuses needing products so that we can coordinate their distribution.

If you are a licensee registered with Fairtrade Canada or if you are a retailer able to provide Fairtrade certified products, please fill out this online form. Make sure to do so before August 1 2017.

If you are a representative of a Campus who would like to receive Fairtrade certified products, please note that unfortunately the deadline (July 23) has passed.
