Addressing the Trafficking of Children & Youth for Sexual Exploitation in BC

Children of the Street Society

This toolkit provides an introduction to the trafficking of children and youth in British Columbia and discusses what an effective response may look like. It emphasizes that the trafficking and sexual exploitation of children and youth are crimes. Included are real examples of how Canada’s human trafficking laws have been used to prosecute human traffickers in BC and across Canada. The goal is to strengthen coordination between community agencies working with vulnerable children and youth in BC and the criminal justice system. This toolkit is designed for individuals and agencies working with children and youth in British Columbia. This may include youth workers, social workers, outreach workers, counsellors, teachers, health care providers, as well as police and victim service workers.
