The Fair Trade Town designation is awarded to communities that meet all the criteria within these five requirements.  The City of Selkirk received its Fair Trade Town designation on May 9, 2017.

  1. Steering Committee:a local Committee must be formed of both active community volunteers and a group of leadership members that will meet regularly to ensure continued commitment
  2. Product Availability: there must be Fairtrade certified products available throughout the Town in proportion to the size of its population
  3. Public Awareness and Education:events and activities must be organized to generate educational opportunities and media engagement for fair trade and the town seeking designation
  4. Community Support:local businesses and schools including other potential partners and community groups are required to support fair trade and the Town in their operations and awareness-raising activities
  5. Political Support:the local municipal authority must commit to sourcing and purchasing Fairtrade certified products in addition to participating and supporting the Town’s Fair Trade status
