Dawson College is now a Fair Trade Campus

While we all enjoy Fairtrade Month in May, Dawson College in Montreal had extra reason to celebrate, with their recent designation as Canada’s 39th Fair Trade Campus.

Fair trade coffee, tea and chocolate have been available on campus for some time, so achieving the designation was a logical next step for the college, which has more than 11,000 students.

The cafeteria and Sustainability Office worked closely to ensure that they met the criteria for designation, which meets the college’s core value of ‘well-being for all’. In addition to Fairtrade coffee, tea, and chocolate, Dawson focuses on sustainable sourcing for other products, as well as local ingredients sourced from a 150km radius.

While the designation has been celebrated online for now, more activities are planned for when students and staff are all back on campus.
