What We Do
If you, or someone you know, is in immediate danger, call 9-1-1 right away.
Angels of Hope Against Human Trafficking (AOH) is a registered charity, providing long-term, bilingual support to Survivors of human trafficking and sexual exploitation of all ages and backgrounds. Founded in 2015, we strive to walk hand-in-hand with Survivors along the road to recovery, while additionally providing support, guidance, education, and counselling to their loved ones. All of our services are free and confidential.
50% of the survivors we work with are Indigenous women and girls
“I don’t know what I’d do without AOH! You guys are amazing! Thank you so much for everything”
“I am so grateful, and I look forward to our groups, I enjoy leading them and connecting with the women”
“You are doing a great job and happy to have the support”
What to Expect from the Intake Process
The purpose of the intake process is for AOH to get to know you and an idea of what services you may need. It is also an opportunity for you to get to know us and the services and support we can offer you. The intake process can be done by phone, virtually over Zoom or in-person with an AOH staff member – the staff member will ask you questions and give you a chance to share your story.
From your responses, we will start a circle of care that could include addictions or mental health counselling, virtual support groups, case management, court support, and/or referrals to specialized community agencies such as housing, employment and training, Methadone clinics, etc.

Indigenous Culture & Counselling
Indigenous Culture and Counselling sound like two different terms when, in fact, they are similar, and go hand in hand, I will introduce and integrate them as such. Counselling is a loaded word in and of itself, but I believe connecting it with culture and teachings will only strengthen and empower individuals in their journey, reinforcing an already-strong foundation. I say strong, because they’ve made it this far, and that’s accredited to resilience.
Services are available to all Survivors, including LGBTQ2S and Indigenous communities. Acute and historic cases are tailored to Survivors’ specific needs. To receive any of the services below, Survivors can be referred by their current service provider, or can self-refer by contacting AOH directly by email, or by phone. *There is currently no wait time to access services.
