Ending Sex Trafficking in Canada

A few years ago, the Canadian Women’s Foundation started to receive an increased number of grant requests from community groups who were trying to help women and girls who were being trafficked.

There are many links between sex trafficking – which we consider an extreme form of violence against women – and our work to help women and girls to move out of violence, out of poverty, and into confidence.

The more we learned about the problem, the more determined we became to take action.

We knew the problem was far too large to tackle on our own, so we launched the Canadian Women’s Foundation’s National Task Force on Sex Trafficking of Women and Girls in Canada to develop a long-term strategy to help end sex trafficking in Canada.

Our strategy includes grants to programs that help women and girls to escape sex trafficking and rebuild their lives, public awareness campaigns, and working with community stakeholders to build local action plans.
