Anti-Human Trafficking Education

Date: Monday, February 12, 2018 01:00 PM - 04:00 PM

Venue: Centennial College Event Centre, Fall/Winter Rooms

Last November the World was shocked by images of people being sold as slaves in Libya.  It is hard to accept that slavery still exists in this modern world…but it does…and it exists here in Canada, in Ontario, and right here in the GTA.

According to Covenant House Toronto, “Ontario is a major hub of human trafficking with 64% of the police-reported cases in Canada.  Ninety percent (90%) of these victims were female.”

As alarming as these facts may be, we can turn the tide on human trafficking at home and abroad, if we work together.

To begin to understand this complex social issue and bring awareness to our community, the Centennial Legal Information Centre and East Metro Youth Services will be hosting a Human Trafficking Education Event.
