Why this matters

In 2021, Saskatchewan had rates of human trafficking that were 1.8 times higher than the national average. More specifically, Saskatoon reported 336 percent more incidences (4.6 incidents per 100,000) of human trafficking to police than the national average (1.4 incidents per 100,000).

Sexual exploitation is an issue in our city, and we all play a role in disrupting the stigma and the barriers to care that sexually exploited people face.

Selling sex for survival is part of a complex history of gender discrimination, racism, and colonization. It is connected to our shared history of colonization and our responsibility to Truth and Reconciliation. Indigenous women account for 50 percent of the victims of sexual exploitation and trafficking in Canada. 63% of sexually exploited people are between 15 and 24 years of age, and newcomers, those within the welfare system, and members of the LGBTQ2S+ community are also overrepresented in the sex industry.

We are a community, and everyone deserves a safe place to turn when they are in need – especially those with additional social stressors and complex barriers to care.

No one can do it all. No one can do it alone. Everyone must find their role as neighbours and fellow citizens.
