Human Trafficking (HT)
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Indigenous women, girls, and two spirit peoples form a disproportionate number of those sexually exploited in Canada through human trafficking. The team at the Ontario Native Women's Association are here to support community.
The Indigenous Anti-Human Trafficking Liaison (IAHTL) Program supports Indigenous communities in providing survivor focused and localized responses to Human Trafficking. The IAHTL initiative was created by and for Indigenous people in order to end Human Trafficking in our communities.
The Aakwa’ode’ewin (Courage for Change) Program supports the unique needs of Indigenous women, youth, and girls that are affected by sexual exploitation. All services provide a trauma-informed, anti-oppressive framework with culture-based practices and models to ensure a seamless integration of cultural and mainstream supports.
