Fair Trade Calgary believes that our city is capable of being a leader in the movement to support ethical procurement. This local not-for-profit is on a mission to make Calgary the next Fair Trade Town in Canada. Fair Trade Town is a designation administered by Fair Tradeorganizations in various countries supporting Fairtrade International that unites local stores, restaurants, and the community around supporting, fair wages, ethical working conditions, and environmentally sustainable practices all along the supply chain. “We’d like to make it easier for people or businesses who want to make Fair Trade choices to connect with the appropriate suppliers and producers,” says Erin Bird of Fair Trade Calgary. “People are looking for that symbol.” Besides providing connections, Fair Trade Calgary also encourages other businesses to get the Fairtrade International certification.
