The CFTN and McGill University are proud to host Canada’s Third-Annual Fair Trade Conference. The three-day event will bring together delegates from across the movement to create opportunities for new partnerships and further the impact of fair trade.

We’ve achieved much in our first three years as an organization, but we’re just scratching the surface. This year’s conference will build on existing relationships to launch a new level of collaboration and cooperation amongst business and advocacy networks.

This year, producer representatives will share their own perspectives on the extraordinary work being done in Canada and around the world in support of fair trade. By working together we can achieve real change.
