Canadian hotline to help end trafficking to launch Fall 2018
Come Fall 2018 drivers traveling Canadian highways will have another tool to help in the fight against human trafficking. The Canadian Centre to End Human Trafficking is launching a national hotline to connect callers with resources in an effort to end forced labor and sex work in throughout the country. Barbara Gosse, CEO of the center, says the primary responsibility of the line will be to connect those who are being exploited to resources to help them escape their current situation. Call-takers will be equipped with information not only for local police departments, but shelters, abuse centers and other places where those being sold can go to be safe.
