Trafficking in women

Printer-friendly version
Resolution number: 
24
December 2001
Whereas: 
  1. Canada has made an international commitment to combat trafficking in women and children and to extend protection to the victims of trafficking through the protocol on trafficking in persons;
  2. Canada and Canadians are complicit in perpetuating trafficking in women and children as a receiving country and as customers;
  3. Some women and children may be eligible for refugee status but others do not obviously qualify because the human rights abuses have occurred in Canada, not the country of origin;
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR call on the Canadian government to offer protection to the women and children who have suffered human rights violations as a result of trafficking, through access to permanent residence, not depending on cooperation with law enforcement officials.
