Sexual Exploitation & Trafficking

Our activities on this issue include:

  • Convening a Provincial Partnership for Action – The Trafficking and Exploitation Services System is a Provincial Partnership that includes 170+ professionals from 40+ agencies across Nova Scotia. This partnership makes up a vast Community of Practice which is action-oriented, meets regularly and is culturally competent and survivor-informed. 
  • Community Awareness and Mobilization – YWCA Halifax offers a menu of training for front line service providers on the issue of exploitation and trafficking, as well as private and public information sessions for stakeholders and the public at large
  • Research and Knowledge Dissemination – We conduct research on the issue through a variety of consultations, interviews and surveys with service providers and first voice.
