FAIR TRADE CAMPUS PROGRAM
The Fair Trade Campus Program is a national initiative that recognizes post-secondary institutions for their efforts in fair trade. SFU received Canada’s second campus designation in 2012 and there are now 32 designated campuses across the country.
SFU, its Dining and Ancillary Services, Fair Trade Ambassadors, faculty, and student body continue to raise the bar for the school’s commitment to fair trade. Every year during the last week of September, the SFU Fair Trade Ambassadors promote Fair Trade Campus Week. The SFU Fair Trade Ambassadors also participate in events such as the National Fair Trade Conference, Fair Trade Origin Trips to the global south, and the World’s Largest Fair Trade Bake Sale.
In October 2020, SFU announced its new designation as a Fair Trade Gold Campus, the first university in Canada to achieve this status (click here to see what SFU is doing as a Fair Trade Gold Campus).
There are many opportunities to get involved in SFU’s campus program activities. Visit the Fair Trade Ambassador Page to find out more, or follow us on social media to keep up to date on our activities.
