Canada has spear-headed a training program which will enable front-line service providers to define human trafficking, understand what Canada’s response to this infuriating crime is, and most importantly, identify trafficked persons and have the information to provide said persons with services for aid and protection. It is the first of its kind in Canada. It has been made nationally available through a funding agreement between Public Safety Canada and the British Columbia Office to Combat Trafficking in Persons (OCTIP).
