National Human Trafficking Awareness Day
On February 22, 2007, the Canadian House of Commons passed a motion condemning the trafficking of women and children across international borders for the purposes of sexual exploitation.
The House of Commons proclaimed February 22 as Human Trafficking Awareness Day to help bring awareness to the magnitude of modern-day slavery in Canada and abroad and encourage Canadians to take steps to combat human trafficking.
The Canadian Centre to End Human Trafficking commends those who are recognizing this day, advocating on behalf of victims and survivors, and taking necessary actions to end this human rights abuse.
