Human trafficking is the recruitment, transportation, or harbouring of persons for the purpose of exploitation, typically in the sex trade. Over the past few years it has become the fastest growing and most lucrative criminal enterprises.
Here in Canada, we are beginning to awake to the realities of this horrific crime. From young girls taken from the streets of Montreal and sold abroad, to the vulnerable children seduced on our First Nation reserves, it is a crime that reaches all elements of our society.
Human trafficking must be stopped.
Our generation has the opportunity to end this horrific crime of human trafficking. Each person that joins the movement against modern slavery makes a permanent impact. You can be that person.
