Olds is a Fair Trade Town, The first in Alberta designated by Fair Trade Canada and the Canadian Fair Trade Network.
We are pleased to present our conference as a Fair Trade Event.Fair trade ensures that people who produce many of the products we depend on, but cannot grow locally such as coffee, chocolate, tea, etc,work together in democratic cooperatives, earn living wages and realize gender equality.There is no child exploitation or child slavery, the environment is respected and communities enjoy healthy, locally determined economic and community development.
