Snack and Chat: Human Trafficking: The underground commerce of human beings

Human trafficking is a serious problem that plagues our society today.

It is estimated that approximately 80% of trafficking involves sexual exploitation, and 19% involves labour exploitation. In Canada, data reveals that 25% of the victims are underage and 46% of them are between the ages of 18 and 24.

The fastest-growing lucrative business in the world, human trafficking is also the second-largest form of organized crime worldwide, according to the RCMP’s 2010 report Human Trafficking in Canada: A Threat Assessment. The report found that Canada is a primary destination country for human trafficking for sexual purposes.
