Human trafficking involves the recruitment, transportation or harbouring of persons for the purposes of exploitation. It does not require the crossing of borders or any movement of persons. Exploitation is the key element of the offence.

The OPP is committed to fighting human trafficking through intelligence-gathering and working cooperatively with our law enforcement and community partners to support victims and refer them to appropriate community-based social services or support agencies for assistance.

Human trafficking is not confined to “big cities”.
