Fair Trade Certified

 

About Fair Trade

Fair trade is an alternative and ethical way of doing business with the developing world. Unlike conventional trade, which seeks to obtain the lowest possible prices for imported products — no matter what this means for the quality of life of farmers and producers — fair trade seeks to ensure that farmers are able to live a life of dignity.

EWB uOttawa and fair trade

EWB uOttawa is the official chapter of Engineers Without Borders at the University of Ottawa. It brings together students who are passionate about international development to focus on challenges to human development and connecting Canadians to Africa, including via fair trade. EWB uOttawa also works with the chapters at Carleton University and the Ottawa City Network.
