Sex Trafficking, also known as Human Trafficking is the fastest growing industry next to the illegal drug trade. Human Trafficking is "NOT" about sex as many are lead to believe. It is about money… human traffickers selling human lives for money. Human Trafficking is on a rapid rise in Canada and is devouring its victims in its wake. The victims are left as nothing more than a mere former shell of themselves. These victims are left deeply scarred from the trauma they suffered through forced sexual acts, intimidation, threats, physical violence, and control of all their actions. Its potential victims range between the ages of 13 and 25 years old. Sex Trafficking victims are NOT defined by sex, ethnicity, or by financial means. They are the vulnerable; they are the one’s who may suffer from low self-esteem, mental health issues, addiction issues, and family issues. They are stripped of their innocence, their dignity and left forever scarred with the trauma suffered at the hands of a trafficker. It takes but just 1 event, 1 sale, 1 beating, and 1 threat to forever alter a human life.
