About Ten Thousand Villages

Ten Thousand Villages Canada is a non-profit program of Mennonite Central Committee Canada, one of the country’s largest international relief and development agencies. The organization deliberately marries the concept of fair trade with healthy and environmentally sustainable business practices. From store operations to product sourcing to marketing practices, Ten Thousand Villages strives to meet the “triple bottom line” of economic, environmental and social sustainability.

Founded in 1946, Ten Thousand Villages has grown from the trunk of founder Edna Ruth Byler’s car to a network of more than 120 retail outlets and 150 festival sales throughout North America. Ten Thousand Villages is an exceptional source for unique handmade gifts, jewellery, home decor, art, sculpture and personal accessories made by artisans in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. One of the world’s largest fair trade organizations and a founding member of the World Fair Trade Organization, Ten Thousand Villages strives to improve the livelihood of tens of thousands of disadvantaged artisans in 29 countries. Product sales help pay for food, education, healthcare and housing for artisans who would otherwise be unemployed or underemployed.
