What You Can Do

Responding to the issue.

Many non-governmental organizations across the country are involved in providing support to individuals who have been trafficked into or within Canada.  These victims need housing, medical care, counseling, legal information and assistance, psychological and material assistance, employment, education and training.  Additional resources and better coordination of services are required to appropriately meet these needs.

Other NGOs are actively engaged in rescuing victims of trafficking from their situations of oppression.  One such organization is International Justice Mission, a human rights organization that intervenes in individual cases to rescue victims of violence, sexual exploitation, slavery and oppression. With field offices in 13 countries, including in countries where human trafficking is prevalent, IJM agents have spent thousands of hours infiltrating human trafficking operations and working with government authorities around the world to bring rescue to victims and accountability to the perpetrators.
