National Forum on Trafficking in Persons

Montreal, 29 November 2018


The annual Forum provides a space for networking, sharing information, tools and strategies to better meet the needs of trafficked persons and those in potential trafficking situations in Canada. The Forum also identifies and analyzes policy concerns that need to be addressed to protect the rights of trafficked persons. The Forum seeks to increase public awareness of trafficking.

The full day meeting on 29 November takes place directly after the CCR Fall Consultation in Montreal, where there will also be a Trafficking Workshop (on 27 November).
