As you know, this year's Fair Trade Fair is a bit different. In an effort to support Fair Trade vendors, adapt to the pandemic, and celebrate a longstanding event we love, we wanted to take the Fair Trade Fair online. Through an incredible partnership with Camosun College, we've created a Fair Trade Fair website where you’ll be able to purchase unique gifts for all of your loved ones! You have one full month to support these amazing socially conscious vendors! The green button above will take you directly to the Fair Trade Fair website, or you can enter:
