FAIR TRADE LUNCH

Join us for lunch to celebrate achievements and discuss future potential for fair trade in the co-operative movement. Fair trade and co-operatives go hand in hand, and in many cases are one and the same. Come hear about success stories that highlight some of the exciting activities underway in Canada and internationally. Embrace this opportunity to meet leaders in the fair trade movement (many of whom are CMC members). This lunch event is discussion oriented, and you will have the opportunity to share your ideas.
