CARE Project Grey-Bruce is a survivor-founded, community-based project that wants to see an end to human trafficking in our communities.
Human trafficking is happening in communities across Canada,
including Grey & Bruce counties.
In Ontario, the most common form of human trafficking is for the purpose of sexual exploitation.
90% of sexual trafficking victims are women and girls.
Indigenous women roughly make up 50% of human trafficking victims
In 2019, 65% of known human trafficking victims identified by police were under the age of 25.
There were 2,468 police-reported incidents of human trafficking in Canada between 2009-2019.
