L’Association québécoise du commerce équitable, the Canadian Fair Trade Network and Fairtrade Canada have jointly launched a new website dedicated to Canada’s Fair Trade Programs.
The new site – fairtradeprograms.ca – consolidates our individual pages into one fully bilingual site with sections dedicated to Towns, Campuses, Schools, Events, Workplaces and Faith Groups.
Whether you are looking for a list of existing designations, or details about how to get your community group Fair Trade designated, the site has all the information you need. We’ve also built in an impact calculator so you can get an estimate of the benefit your group could provide to farmers and workers in the Global South.
The next phase of the project will see the creation of a resource hub for groups that are already designated, and those working towards it. This will include documents, videos and images, and a discussion forum, along with webinars and learning opportunities. Development on this will continue through 2020.
