The Canadian Centre to End Human Trafficking is a national charity dedicated to ending all types of human trafficking in Canada.
Human trafficking in Canada is occurring at shocking levels. It is a sophisticated, organized crime and that demands sophisticated, coordinated and integrated solutions.
The Canadian Centre to End Human Trafficking has been established as the national “backbone” organization working on this issue. The Centre collaborates and works with the various stakeholders dedicated to this issue, including all levels of government, private sector businesses and front line service providers in order to advance best practices and eliminate duplicate efforts across Canada.
The Canadian Centre to End Human Trafficking exists to create a national strategy for change.
Our goal is to mobilize collective action and system change to end human trafficking in Canada.
To end human trafficking for the purpose of sexual and labour exploitation in Canada by providing strength and support to stakeholders. We will do this through collective action, by creating opportunities to connect and learn from each other and by building capacity, on all levels, to end this abhorrent crime in Canada.
Our objectives are specific and measurable and will reflect milestones in our path to ensure that we continue to mobilize collective action and system change to end human trafficking in Canada. We will strive to:
- Function as a catalyst by bringing together relevant stakeholders in order to provide avenues for Survivor’s voices, to share knowledge and to assist the implementation of effective practices through collective action aiming to end sex and labour trafficking.
- Enhance collaboration with representatives of government, private sector businesses and non-profit organizations to create cost efficiency through shared strategy development and due diligence. This will enable cross-sectoral coordination and assist to provide access to networks and specialized skills that currently function ineffectively in silos.
- Advance federal, provincial and municipal policy and programs, aimed at ending human trafficking, advocating for evidence-based measures as well as supporting, undertaking and making available research related to the human trafficking practices.
- Provide an accessible, online resource center with current information and research that will increase awareness and education about the complex problem of human trafficking in Canada.
- Establish a national human trafficking hotline to provide an avenue for victims and Survivors to get assistance and for members of the public to report incidents human trafficking.
