Event description
The training will equip law enforcement personnel with a deeper understanding of the impact of sexual exploitation.

About this Event

Training Summary:

The training is based on 20 years of experience with the Prostitution Offender Program in Winnipeg, Manitoba. We will highlight how the justice system together with community agencies needs to respond to sexual exploitation by focussing on the demand side of paid sex. We will explore: the reasons of why men buy sex, the legal provisions in the Criminal Code of Canada about prostitution, enforcement strategies against demand, and the connection between the sex industry and missing and murdered indigenous women and girls. We will also share powerful testimonies of women who have lived through sexual exploitation, abuse and trauma and how they are using their voices to educate sex buyers about the harms of this industry.

Audience: crown prosecutors, police officers, judges, lawyers, law students, community activists who work in the field against sexual exploitation.

Organizing team:

The training is organized through collaboration between the Salvation Army Correctional and Justice Services Winnipeg, Manitoba Justice Prosecution Services, Winnipeg Police Services and other community agencies.

This event is hosted by Defend Dignity.
