After many years of outreach, advocacy and engagement, the grassroots push in Edmonton to promote Fairtrade laid the groundwork for unanimous City Council approval.
After receiving city council’s support and following Fairtrade Canada’s formal approval, Edmonton has officially become the 17th community and the 2nd largest in Canada (following Toronto) to become a Fairtrade Town!
We would like to thank Edmontonians for their support of the movement by inviting everyone to come join us for the official public announcement of Edmonton becoming a Fair Trade Town, Thursday, September 26 from 5:30-6:30pm at the Alumni Room, SUB building, University of Alberta.
Come celebrate this tangible step for ethical procurement with community members, local government officials and Fairtrade Town coordinators.
This invite is intended for all Edmontonians - so please share with your networks!
