The crime of Trafficking is growing. It is a multi-million dollar business that is happening here and now!
National Human Trafficking Day in Canada
February 22 is National Human Trafficking Awareness Day, a time to bring awareness to the extent to which individuals are exploited through labour trafficking and sex trafficking in Canada.
Recognizing Human Trafficking Awareness Day is a step towards combatting this form of modern-day slavery, helping to advocate on behalf of survivors, and supporting actions to ending the abuse.
Human trafficking – especially sex trafficking – is a pervasive threat to public safety involving the recruitment, transportation, harbouring and/or exercising control, direction or influence over the movements of a person, for the purpose of exploitation.
