Fairtrade is about more than fair pay; it is about building connections, community investments, and environmental sustainability. Thanks largely to the Marquis Project and the community, Brandon proudly became Manitoba’s second Fair Trade Town on May 20nd 2014, the 19th Fair Trade Town in Canada! A Fair Trade Town is a community where people use their everyday purchasing power to increase sales of Faitrade certified products. This brings positive change to communities in the global south. There are hundreds of Fairtrade products in 16 stores right here in Brandon. Fairtrade coffee is available at A&W, Blue Hill Bakery, Coffee Culture, Forbidden Flavours, Lady of the Lake, Wildflower Café; The Dock offers Fairtrade wine.
