Human Trafficking

What is human trafficking?

Human trafficking is a criminal offence. It involves controlling, forcing, intimidating, or deceiving a person of any age in order to exploit them through various forms of sexual exploitation or forced labour. Human trafficking does not necessarily require physical movement. 

Pimps aren’t always men, and sex workers aren’t always women. Both pimps and sex workers can be anyone: men, women, youths, members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) community, etc. Not all sex workers are victims of human trafficking. 

Human trafficking and sexual exploitation can happen in communities of all sizes.

Human trafficking is happening in our community and it could happen to someone you know.
