Human Trafficking for Forced Labour Forum: April 23rd, 2013

   FCJ Refugee Centre invites you to participate in this year’s forum focusing on persons trafficked internationally to Canada for the purposes of forced labour, and the barriers to services and protection for these populations.The forum will prioritise developing proactive recommendations and promising practices. 

    In the morning, experts from leading international organizations and locally-based advocates will share their experiences. During the afternoon, a panel of experts will discuss the current challenges faced in Ontario. This will be followed by two simultaneous workshops, facilitated by experts, to discuss the current challenges in urban and rural settings, as well as intersectional understandings of these issues. Participants and panel experts will develop internationally-informed strategies in order to offset the gaps in service provision and protection of internationally trafficked persons.
