A brief description of the institution’s Fair Trade initiatives, including the year formal designation was achieved and/or renewed:

"In 2013 Fair Trade Canada recognized McGill University’s commitment to Fair Trade purchases and awarded McGill with the Fair Trade Campus designation, thanks to the collaboration between McGill Engineers Without Borders, McGill Student Housing and Hospitality Services, McGill's main Food Provider, McGill Office of Sustainability and McGill faculty members.
All Fair Trade coffee, Fair Trade teas and Camino chocolates are available in all residence dining halls, non-franchised Campus cafés, the Student Society of McGill (SSMU) as well as through our main on-campus service provider.

McGill now aims to include Fair Trade certified tropical fruit, sugar and cotton t-shirts in purchases."
