National Strategy to Combat Human Trafficking 2019–2024

Type

Policy

Country / jurisdiction

Canada

Enacting authority

Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Canada

Entry into force / date of approval

4 September 2019

Description

Canada’s National Strategy to Combat Human Trafficking (National Strategy) is a whole-of-government approach that brings together federal initiatives under one strategic framework that aligns with the internationally recognized pillars of prevention, protection, prosecution and partnerships. It also introduces a new focus area, “empowerment”, to enhance support and services to victims and survivors of human trafficking. The National Strategy demonstrates Canada’s commitment to incorporating more victim-centred, trauma-informed and culturally-relevant approaches to policies, programs and training to better counter this crime.
Informed by stakeholder consultations, the National Strategy builds on existing federal anti-human trafficking initiatives and includes an enhanced suite of new initiatives to strengthen the Government of Canada’s efforts to address human trafficking both domestically and abroad. These include measures to: increase public awareness, education, and capacity-building to prevent the victimization of vulnerable and marginalized populations; encourage ethical behaviours by suppliers within the federal procurement supply chain; strengthen the ability to identify and protect victims of human trafficking; improve criminal justice system experiences for victims and survivors; and improve domestic and international partnerships to bolster Canada’s collective response.
