Fair Trade Wolfville

Wolfville has been declared Canada’s first Fair Trade Town for its commitment to fair trade coffees and teas. With local award-winning vineyards, restaurants committed to local products and a busy farmers’ market housed in a former apple warehouse on the former rail line, Wolfville is a popular destination in Nova Scotia.

The Fair Trade movement in Canada owes its current  success to the hard work and creative efforts of countless businesses, community groups, faith organizations, students, unions and NGOs that for years have been raising awareness about Fair Trade issues and working to create greater availability of Fair Trade products. Similarly, campaigning for Fair Trade and ethical procurement has already been active in the handful of cities which have passed ethical purchasing policies or resolutions to draft such policies.  Support for Fair Trade has been growing acros the country, and now is the time for your community to become a Fair Trade Town!
