Human Trafficking - A Canadian Issue

Many Canadians believe that human trafficking is mainly an international issue. Yet, trafficking is a major concern right here in Canada. The vast majority of trafficking cases that occur in Canada are domestic. In Ontario, where the highest number of trafficking cases occur, at least 63% of those trafficked were Canadian citizens. While human trafficking can occur in a variety of ways, all of it is done through the use of control, threats and/or violence in order to exploit another being for financial gain. In Canada, around 70% of human trafficking cases are committed for the purpose of sexual exploitation.
