The Joy Smith Foundation offers free educational resources to help Canadians understand and fight human trafficking.

The first resource is for guardians and parents to “Know the Signs” to educate on the real risks of human trafficking, potential signs that their children may be at risk of being trafficked, and practical everyday online safety tips.

The second resource educates high school students to “Know the Facts” about the threat of sex trafficking in Canada. The resource provides an overview of tactics human traffickers use to recruit new victims and the step-by-step grooming process that many human trafficking victims are put through.

Please share these resources with parents/guardians and young adults in your community.

The National Human Trafficking Education Centre provides free courses for teachers, parents, front-line responders, and all Canadians who want to prevent and intervene with human trafficking. You can sign up for a free course at
