Event Details

The forum will focus on internationally trafficked persons and barriers to services and protection for these populations. The forum will highlight migrant victims who might be in Canada with some form of precarious immigration status such as seasonal workers, international students, and sponsored persons. The event will bring together international experts and national stakeholders from multiple sectors including legal, law enforcement, health and human services. The participants will be engaged in panel discussions and workshops surrounding the services, assistance and laws in place to address the needs of the internationally trafficked persons.
