CONTENT/TRIGGER WARNING: Human trafficking and sexual exploitation of a minor. Read on with care.
We were horrified to learn about this young girl's rescue in Bridgewater, but unfortunately we weren't surprised. Nova Scotia has the highest rate of human trafficking and exploitation in the country. This is happening in our community.
We would like to recommend this free online training module that is available to all Nova Scotians, to help learn to spot the signs of human trafficking and sexual exploitation of youth, and how you can potentially offer support and options to the young person being trafficked. The more we all know about this issue, the better equipped we will be to end trafficking and exploitation in our province.
