Thanks to engaged and active Edmontonians, Edmonton become the second largest city in Canada to show its commitment to and support for  a sustainable and just global community by becoming a Fairtrade Town.

We have documented growing availability and consumption of Fairtrade products, widespread community support for Fairtrade amongst schools, churches and businesses, and unanimous support by Edmonton's City Councillors for Edmonton becoming a Fairtrade Town.

We are excited to keep the movement growing by continuing to raise awareness and consumer engagement with Fairtrade.
