Sexual exploitation and human trafficking of youth happens in Canada, and it can happen to anyone.
Education and awareness is the key for prevention and early intervention.
Publishes in late 2015, this toolkit is designed to educate parents on the issue of sexual exploitation and human trafficking, enabling them to recognize warning signs, safeguard their children against exploitation, and equip them with strategies and tools for managing this issue should it happen to their child.

Although this toolkit includes many aspects of the exploitation experience, it is not comprehensive. It is not meant to be used in lieu of professional services but as an information resource and guide.
Trends and information change and evolve frequently, and each experience is unique.
The toolkit can be read in its entirety or by section, as relevant to your experience.
If you have any questions, concerns, or are in need of support, please contact Children of the Street.
For Service Providers
