Brief Description

The federal government established a National Human Trafficking Hotline in 2019-2020 as a part of its efforts to continue working on combating human trafficking after the expiration of the National Action Plan to Combat Human Trafficking (2012) in 2016. It is a bilingual, 24/7 toll-free line capable of responding to calls, emails and texts. The hotline intends to provide a centralized, victim-centered, survivor-informed referral service and resource centre for every victim and survivor across the country, and work to increase public awareness, and inform policy and program development. The Canadian Centre to End Human Trafficking has been tasked to implement the hotline.
