July 28, 2021
OTTAWA – The Ontario government is investing more than $8.2 million over five years in new community-based and Indigenous-led programs to provide more young victims and survivors of human trafficking in Ottawa with the services they need. With this funding, Tungasuvvingat Inuit and Roberts/Smart Centre are providing new programs to help children and youth in the region in need of specialized care. Providing better protection and increased supports for children and youth who have been sexually exploited or are at risk is a key focus of Ontario’s strategy to combat human trafficking.
