September 15, 2021
Simon Fraser University has announced that it has attained Fair Trade Gold Campus status for the second year in a row. SFU says that Fairtrade Canada and the Canadian Fair Trade Network have recognized it as meeting the Fair Trade Gold Campus criteria, and that the designation was achieved due to the efforts of SFU Ancillary Services and the student Fair Trade Ambassadors. “We know our actions are having an impact not only in the global south but also on other campuses across the country,” said Mark McLaughlin, Chief Commercial Services Officer, SFU Ancillary Services. “The choices we make more than ever can have a meaningful and wide-reaching impact on producers and local businesses.” SFU states that it is Canada’s only Fair Trade Gold Campus.
