The Ministry of Public Security reports of 2021 show that human trafficking in Canada increased while the number of prosecution of cases remain low. Progress in combatting human trafficking has been sidelined due to the COVID 19 pandemic and there is urgent need to reprioritize addressing the crime of human trafficking.
