Sex trafficking is a growing crime in Canada. It is often under-reported, under-estimated and largely misunderstood.1
Essentially, sex trafficking is exploiting someone through force, fraud or coercion for another person's financial gain. As a multi-billion dollar industry, it is more lucrative than guns or drugs: traffickers can make over $280,000 per year by controlling one victim.2
This crime is affecting the lives of countless young women and girls in Canada.
