UHE – BC’s First Fairtrade School!


University Highlands Elementary has been designated as a “Fair Trade School” – the first and only school in BC.

There are 25 Fair Trade schools across Canada. Becoming Fair Trade designated requires bringing together groups of engaged and knowledgeable members from a school’s community to ensure that fair trade and Fairtrade certified products are incorporated into a school’s activities and throughout the year.

By choosing Fairtrade products, workers and farmers are given the power to create better lives for themselves and enjoy sustainable communities.
