One Month Challenge 2011

Posted January 18th 2011

The Manitoba Council for International Cooperation (MCIC) and its Fair Trade Manitoba (FTM) program are excited to present our fifth annual Fair Trade One-Month Challenge! Manitobans are invited to take up the challenge by consuming fair trade coffee, tea and chocolate - rather than conventional brands - for the period from Valentine’s Day, February 14th to March 15th. CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP

In the past, thousands of Manitobans have participated in the One-Month Challenge. They have also attended OMC-related events in their schools, workplaces and faith communities, and in public venues. Merchants have reported that their fair trade sales skyrocket during the OMC and increase with each annual OMC period. MCIC has posters, brochures, stickers, tent cards and other promotional and educational materials, as well as speakers, available. Contact us at or call (204) 987-6420.
