Fair Trade at UTM

Trailblazer Award

2020 Trailblazer Award

We are thrilled to share that the University of Toronto Mississauga was presented with the 2020 Fair Trade Canada TRAILBLAZER award this year!

We plan on continuing to find new and productive ways to sustainably source products both in food service and other areas to ensure not only environmental sustainability, but fair and decent working conditions, treatment, and wages for the farmers and supply chain as well.




Canada's 1st SILVER Fair Trade Campus


We are thrilled and so proud to share that UTM has officially earned the Silver Fair Trade Campus designation, and we are the first Campus in Canada to do so!

In December 2019, UTM was named Canada's FIRST Silver Fair Trade Campus! We are proud to share that we have set the standards to ensure we are making environmentally & socially responsible decisions today, and we will continue to do so in the future. We look forward to continuing on this path and finding new ways to bring Fair Trade products to campus.
