This will be the Fair Trade event of the season, bringing together Fair Trade (chocolate & wine) and local foods (cheese & beer) to showcase the best of Ottawa and beyond. The evening will include speakers, special guests, city councillors and representatives from various organizations. The evening will include a silent auction and local businesses will be on hand, showcasing their Fair Trade wares for purchase.
This will also be a fundraiser for Fair Trade Ottawa Équitable and Ottawa’s showpiece of Fair Trade Fortnight, launching Fairtrade Canada’s “Take a Step” Campaign.
