|Take this free online course to help understand what Human Trafficking is:
Human trafficking is the recruiting, transporting, harbouring, or receiving of a person for the purpose of exploiting them. Traffickers use threats, force, coercion, deception, or other means to force a person to provide labour or sexual services, and sometimes their organs. Human trafficking occurs in most countries around the world, including Canada, and not just to foreign nationals, but to Canadian citizens as well.
Human Trafficking: Canada Is Not Immune is designed for service providers who may come into contact with a trafficked person in the course of their work.
The general public is also encouraged to take this course to learn more about human trafficking in Canada.
The focus of this course is to help you to better recognize, protect, and assist people who may have been trafficked, and to help safeguard their human rights. It is not meant to train you in investigative law enforcement techniques or in conducting a criminal prosecution, although law enforcement and Crown Counsel/Attorneys may benefit from the information provided in this course.
