BOOK NOW or e-mail with your request.

Sex trafficking is a local issue and a hidden crime – over 90 percent of victims are Canadian girls. The crime often goes undetected throughout our city, around the province and across the country. Whether in a hotel, taxi cab, or shopping mall, victims show signs of exploitation that are easily dismissed when staff do not know what to look for. With the right information and training, your industry can play a crucial role in preventing, recognizing and reporting incidents of sex trafficking. Your training will help you offer a way for young women who are being victimized to reclaim their lives. It will also protect the reputation of your business.

Our Sex Trafficking Prevention Training equips relevant industry staff with the information and skills necessary to increase safety, recognize warning signs and respond accordingly.

Topics covered include:

  • the local scene
  • victim and trafficker profiles
  • warning signs
  • employee responsibilities
  • appropriate responses

Led by an expert facilitator, attendees will have the opportunity to consider scenarios and work out their response in a collaborative environment, developing the tools they need to keep their workplace safe and join the fight against sex trafficking.

Covenant House has assisted trafficking victims for three decades. We recently launched an anti-trafficking plan we call our Urban Response Model, which provides specialized services, including crisis shelter and transitional housing for victims, a prevention strategy for at-risk girls, an intervention strategy for those who come into contact with victims, and a research and evaluation plan so that we can share our knowledge and experience with others.
