East Metro Youth Services, Human Trafficking

The nature of the sex trade has changed significantly over the past several years in our society as we are becoming more digitally driven. In many respects, this has made the challenge of protecting those who are being controlled and exploited more difficult in that much of this crime in the digital environment is invisible.

YWCA Canada, Project Shift & Knowledge Exchange

Creating a safer digital world for young women engages communities to prevent and eliminate cyberviolence against young women and girls across Canada. Project Shift’s diverse stakeholders (YWCA member associations, public sector policy makers, justice and legal professionals, violence against women experts, digital market players) responded to girls and young women’s needs by identifying issues and developing strategies to prevent this form of gender-based violence.

Enhance your knowledge and skills and become more comfortable in supporting those at risk.



Light refreshments will be provided.
