Human Trafficking is prevalent in our communities. 60% of all human trafficking in Canada is initiated along the 400 series highways. We need to help put a stop to human trafficking by providing funds for Awareness programs as well as providing funds to help those who have been victims of human trafficking. According to StatsCan, 95% of the victims are female and 26% of the victims are under the age of 18 years old.
We believe that by educating and coming together as a global community we are strong, and can have a positive impact to stop this horrific human issue.
