It might be hard to believe, for some, that human and sex trafficking actually happens in Canada, but it does.
It’s a form of gender-based violence that many Indigenous women face, and that’s not right. There are a lot of resources to help stop it, though.
If you suspect trafficking is happening in your community, or have experienced it yourself, you can contact a local sexual assault line, women’s crisis line, your local Friendship Centre or the police. Many of these services can be found at the National Association of Friendship Centre’s website, New Journeys.
