Ontario is launching a call for applications for the new Anti-Human Trafficking Community Supports Fund, which will support community-based solutions for helping human trafficking survivors and increasing protection for people at risk of being trafficked.

The three-year fund will enhance services across Ontario, including:

  • Meeting the complex needs of survivors with easy access to the right services, how and when they are needed
  • Helping prevent at-risk people from being trafficked with new community initiatives
  • Meaningfully engaging survivors in the planning and implementation of supports
  • Encouraging innovation and partnerships among those who are supporting survivors and working to end human trafficking.

This call for applications follows consultations with more than 200 organizations, Indigenous partners, community groups and survivors of human trafficking on the design and development of the fund.

Ontario’s Strategy to End Human Trafficking is a part of the government's vision to ensure that everyone in the province can live in safety - free from the threat, fear or experience of exploitation and violence.
