Goals of the Canadian Council for Refugees' campaign
Permanent and fundamental change in policy so that trafficked persons in Canada are protected and their human rights respected.
- Increased public awareness of the reality of trafficking in persons in Canada.
The CCR has identified the following principles to guide responses to trafficking:
- Non-punitive: Measures must not penalize trafficked persons
- Human rights: Measures must be guided by and be respectful of the human rights of trafficked persons
- Economic rights: Measures must be guided by and be respectful of the economic rights of trafficked persons
- Supportive services: There is a need for supportive services for trafficked persons
- Gender and race analysis: A gender and race analysis should be brought to any consideration of trafficking issues
- Inclusive of trafficked persons: Discussions about trafficked persons should include trafficked persons themselves
CCR Pan-Canadian Anti-Trafficking Network
The CCR supports NGOs across Canada in their work on trafficking by:
- Creating opportunities for information-exchange across the country;
- Developing tools needed by organizations;
- Making accessible useful resources to support outreach and awareness-raising on trafficking and to support services to trafficked persons.
The CCR anti-trafficking network is guided by an Anti-Trafficking Committee. Learn more about the CCR pan-Canadian anti-trafficking network.
