Human Trafficking - Online Training for Service Providers

A free online training program is now available in English and French for service providers who support victims of human trafficking across Ontario. These include people in the legal and law enforcement communities, as well as the labour, licensing enforcement, child support, health, welfare, social and victim services sectors.

Funding has been provided by the Government through the Victims Justice Fund for an independent organization, Multilingual Community Interpreter Services (MCIS), to develop and host the training, which was created in consultation with subject area experts, service providers, government staff, police and survivors of human trafficking.

The program includes many resources, tools and tips for professionals, volunteers and students.

The nine training modules may be completed in sequence or as appropriate to suit individual needs. They are:

  • an overview of human trafficking
  • human trafficking in Canada and Ontario
  • dynamics of human trafficking
  • human trafficking indicators
  • service needs of trafficked persons
  • unique needs of Aboriginal clients
  • unique needs of Francophone clients
  • first response practices
  • medium and long-term support.
