In this introductory webinar to human trafficking in Canada, speaker Leah Evangelista Woolner from the Movement Against Rape and Incest (MCVI), will define human trafficking and explore its impact on migrant women with precarious immigration status in Canada. Designed for frontline workers and service providers who work in the non-profit and community sector and/or for those who work directly with migrant and immigrant women, this webinar aims to:
1. Increase frontline workers’ awareness on the issue of human trafficking and to better understand its manifestations;
2. Consider how systemic inequities and other factors may make migrant women vulnerable to trafficking in Canada;
3. Present some common issues with trafficking identification and some tips for feminist and rights-based approaches for working with migrant women trafficking survivors.
Following this webinar, we will be hosting a post-session chat with Leah. Space is limited at 25 participants so book your spot early by confirming your interest when you register for this webinar.
