About the Fairtrade system:
Fairtrade Canada is the only Canadian member of Fairtrade International.
The international Fairtrade system is comprised of over 30 national organizations and 3 continental networks working together to empower consumers, businesses and developing-world producers to make the world a better place.
The Canadian Fairtrade Awards recognize exceptional Fairtrade supporters, partners and allies, including retailers, traders, towns and campuses. The nomination period for the 2014 Awards ends August 8th, 2014.
Fairtrade is a large, complex work in progress. We have never claimed to tackle all the many injustices that grind down people living in poverty, or to have achieved trade nirvana balancing all of global trade's problems with a magic Mark.
