OPP have new initiative to combat human trafficking

Provincial police in southwestern Ontario say they're implementing a strategy to support people being victimized through human trafficking

The OPP say they believe human trafficking is a vastly underreported crime and the victims are coerced into sexual exploitation or forced labour.

They say the most vulnerable targets for human traffickers are young women, at-risk youth, youth in care, migrant workers, indigenous people, and people with addiction and mental health issues.
