Welcome To Fair Trade Guelph!
We are a group of citizens of Guelph working to get Guelph recognized as a Fair Trade city. This means we will be part of a global network of towns and cities working to raise awareness of fair trade and make more fair trade products available.
Our steps to success
The Fair Trade Canada website, www.fairtrade.ca, lists the steps to our goal as the following:
- Political Support: The local council uses Fairtrade certified products and supports the Fair Trade Towns campaign
- Availability of Products: Stores & restaurants serve Fairtrade certified products
- Community Support: Workplaces, faith groups, & schools use and promote Fairtrade certified products
- Public Education: Public awareness events and media coverage held on Fairtrade and the campaign
- Fair Trade Town Committee: A steering group created for continued commitment
- Keep the Momentum: Other ethical and sustainable initiatives promoted within the community
