Our Campus Initiatives

dine on campus

The University of Toronto, Mississauga is the first Canadian campus to earn the Silver Fair Trade Campus designation! 

In December of 2019, UTM was named Canada's FIRST Silver Fair Trade Campus. UTM Dining Services and UTM Hospitality and Retail Services are proud to share that we have set the standards to ensure we are making environmentally & socially responsible decisions today, and we will continue to do so in the future.

Colman Commons Waste Room

We are committed to doing all that we can to help educate and support our guests so they can correctly dispose of their waste.

In March 2019, alongside UTM’s Hospitality and Retail Services Team, we enhanced the waste room in Colman Commons in OPH to provide physical examples of what goes where in order to eliminate questions or any areas of confusion. We have taken actual items sold on campus, emptied them, cleaned them, and glued them to the walls above the place where they need to be thrown – Glass/Metal Recycling, Plastic Recycling, Garbage, Food Waste, Liquid Waste. We have also installed a sink for liquid waste and a strainer to catch the solids in order to ensure proper disposal.
