The National Task Force on Sex Trafficking of Women and Girls in Canada

In 2012, the Canadian Women's Foundation launched a National Task Force on Sex Trafficking of Women and Girls in Canada to help develop a strategy to end sex trafficking in Canada.

The Task Force consisted of twenty-four experts from across Canada, including trafficking survivors, an Indigenous Elder, members of the law enforcement and justice sectors, service providers, academics, and all levels of government. The Task Force traveled across Canada to meet with survivors and other local experts. They consulted with service providers through a national roundtable and an on-line survey. They consulted with national and international experts. The Task Force submitted its report in May 2014.

Based on this research, the Canadian Women’s Foundation has developed a five-year strategy to help end sex trafficking in Canada.
