Strathcona Christian Academy Secondary is the latest Canadian school to receive a fair trade designation. We were granted the Fair Trade School status by Fairtrade Canada and the Canadian Fair Trade Network (CFTN) on September 21.
The prestigious designation is granted to schools throughout the country who have made a commitment to supporting and educating their school communities about fair trade issues—fair working conditions, prices and terms for global farmers and workers, most often living in developing nations.
Our Secondary school is among 18 fair trade schools in Canada and four in Alberta and is the first so designated within Elk Island Public Schools.
Congratulations to our Secondary school’s Teens Against Violent Oppression (TAVO) group who led the campaign to achieve the fair trade designation!
