The simplest thing that people can do to support fair trade is to buy certified products and show there is a demand for socially-responsible goods.
Fair Trade Ottawa Équitable is working on an index to help you locate the products you know and love around Ottawa! For now, you can check out some tips on locating items on our fair trade products page and search on the Ethical Tree directory for some local businesses that stock and/or serve fair trade. You can buy some fair trade products online at Rosette Fair Trade, and Fairtrade Canada also lists who sells which types of products in Canada on the Fairtrade Canada Guide.
Thank you for your patience!
