Fair Trade Trois-Rivières

Trois-Rivières, QC—Fairtrade Canada recently awarded Trois-Rivières status as a Fair Trade Town. The status was a result of the hard work of members from the Youth Committee of le Comité de Solidarité/Trois-Rivières (CS3R).

"Choosing fair trade products, it is about paying a fair price to producers and workers in developing countries, taking care of the environment, combatting child labour and strengthening the rights of workers while supporting community development," says Anick Michaud, head of the CS3R Youth Committee.
