This April, the team at Courage for Freedom wanted to share prevention tips to protect you and your community against human trafficking. Let's make a splash this month by spreading the knowledge and taking action to end the buying and selling of girls and boys, children in Canada.

Raise confident, resilient kids:
  • Educate kids without fear. Have age-appropriate conversations about what to look out for (for example, human traffickers may pose as a fellow kid/teen interested in friendship or a relationship) and methods that can ensure they stay safe online.
  • Maintain open communication with your children. Let them know that they can come to you if they need to talk to someone.
  • Help your kids build self-esteem. Encourage and support them as they participate in activities that make them feel good about themselves!
  • Ensure that your children are building healthy relationships with peers that are trustworthy, loyal, and supportive.
  • Actively listen to your kids and make time to hear out their concerns.

Be empowered, trustworthy adults:
  • Kids need allies to keep them safe. Remember: one safe, secure adult to talk to in addition to family is prevention.
  • Know the signs of human trafficking and share this information with your friends, family, and young people in you life.
  • Enter the Canadian Human Trafficking Hotline number into your phone for easy access to support services or law enforcement in your community in case of emergency: 1-833-900-1010
    • The hotline is for: victims and their friends and family seeking help, people with a tip to report a potential case, and members of the public wanting to learn more about the subject.
  • Learn about and share information on Safety Planning from the Canadian Human Trafficking Hotline, which outlines general safety tips and how to exit a human trafficking situation.
