February is Human Trafficking Awareness month at Nokiiwin, and we invite you to visit the web page and resource library we’ve developed on our site...

Human Trafficking is a global issue, but also one that uniquely affects our remote and rural communities. Everyone is welcome to join us for one or more of the free workshops available this month to learn more about the realities of Human Trafficking in Ontario and Canada, and how we can address it in our workplaces and communities. 

We are offering four different Industry-specific workshops, and a Facebook live Q&A with Human Rights Advocate and Trafficking Survivor Bridget Perrier. All sessions will be hosted by Nokiiwin’s Victim Support Advocate Ashleigh Presenger.

Each session comes with the opportunity to win a framed, signed print by Fort William First Nation Artist Deanna Therriault.

One ballot will be received for registration, another for attendance, and a third for each post-workshop survey completed (to help us develop our programming for future events and workshops based on your feedback!). Draws will take place the day after each session, and the winners announced on Facebook. All ballots from each workshop session will be eligible for our grand prize draw on February 24th during our Access to Justice Virtual Training Week.

Why is this important?

Many industries regularly intersect with Human trafficking without knowing. Awareness of the signs of Human Trafficking and recognition of when to ask for help and how to find resources can allow individuals, organizations, and communities to reduce and prevent Human Trafficking.
