Barbara Gosse was formerly the Senior Director of Research, Policy and Innovation at the Canadian Women’s Foundation. She was responsible for strategic research, policy and advocacy activities supporting the Foundation's systemic change work in the areas of economic development, violence prevention and anti-poverty.
Since the fall 2014 publication of the ground-breaking “NO MORE” Report of the Task Force on Trafficking of Women and Girls in Canada”, the Canadian Women’s Foundation has made dramatic strides to combat sex trafficking in Canada. Through a five year strategy, the Foundation addresses this abhorrent crime in three strategic areas:
1. Financial support for critical anti-trafficking efforts.
2. Promotion of a collective action approach with many important stakeholders.
3. Sharing of knowledge and expertise to promote system change at the three levels of government.
